At any dinner party worthy of the name, a board of fine cheeses is the delicious, and expected, finale. Through its myriad tasty and pungent varieties, few other foods inspire such gastronomic pleasure or, indeed, passion. So let it simply be said: cheese is awesome.

If you think so too, from this spring, you can enrol at the Academy of Cheese in London and work towards the equivalent accreditation that sommeliers obtain for wine, a Master of Cheese.
