History of cheese

People have been making cheese for over 10,000 years and originally became popular in Europe and the Middle East. However, most cheese production is a relatively modern affair, with most cheeses that we know and love today being first produced in the 1700-1800s.

With mass production, cheese became cheaply available to the multitudes, but the traditional cheesemakers still retained their craft and their cheeses are much sought after today. As a high quality cheese caterer in Bromley, these are the cheeses that you will find on one of our grazing tables.
