Based in The New Forest in the United Kingdom, Jonathan Broomfield (a.k.a Cheesy1) exudes enthusiasm & is a passionate cheese expert with over fifteen years’ experience in the industry.

He is a seasoned professional cheese judge with over 5 years of service at both the International Cheese & Dairy Awards and British Cheese Awards. He has just recently been appointed a UK Ambassador for the International Cheese & Dairy Awards.

He is a former member of the Guild of Cheese Graders where he officially ISO accredited his palate and through the years has also been certified as a butter grader.

 

Along the way the Cheesy1 has developed a passion for supporting cheesemakers, and their products, by writing about them on the Cheesy1 blog.

This has led to hosting over 30 unique & tailored cheese talks & tastings that are fun & informative where he has received praise across the board for his entertaining presentation style. 

 

He can be booked for your speaking events, bespoke tasting events, judging, cheese grading and more.

Keen to expand his knowledge & further share his extensive passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for all things cheese, the Cheesy1 has recently become the Cheese Expert for Harveys of Hythe (harveysofhythe.uk).

    "Thank you very much for coming along to our WI meeting yesterday and giving us a very informative and enjoyable afternoon.  I think we found it interesting pairing the different wines with the different cheeses."

    "You gave an excellent performance on Saturday evening at

    our Wine & Cheese Event and there have been many compliments 

    about your cheeses and your narrative.

    Thank you very much indeed for gracing us with your presence, for all

    the hard work you did beforehand and for the careful selections you made

    in the run-up to the tasting."

  • WI Milford On Sea

     

    "Thank you so much for your presentation it was much enjoyed by all the ladies and feedback was really positive.

    Your passion shone through and has made quite a few of us think of different ways in presenting a cheese board.  Your depth of knowledge was so evident and the fact there was complete silence throughout your talk was testament to how much it was embraced."

    "We met Jonathan at the Farm Shop & Deli Show in Birmingham. When we decide to create pairings between chocolate and other products, cheese came to mind and we sought Jonathan’s advice. It was a pleasure to work with him. It's always great to share ideas with other people who are passionate about flavours.  "
