Cheshire Taste of


We’re a nation of foodies nowadays and celebrity chefs are today’s heroes. We go in search of Cheshire’s food and drink and serve up some delicious treats en route.


You only have to look around the countryside of Cheshire to know that the food and drink is going to be exceptional.


It's probably one of the greenest places you will ever visit.


The wild wind-swept hills of the Peak District give way to the lush, fertile pastures of the Cheshire Plain and everything yielded by the land is fresh and pure.


Its natural produce is world-renowned and rooted in history.


Cheshire Cheese is Britain's oldest named cheese.


It can be dated back to Roman Britain and is also mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.


In the 16th century it was reputed to be the best cheese of Europe and was a favourite at the Court of Elizabeth I.


The distinctive flavour of Cheshire cheese is due to salt springs which run under much of the pasture land.


These give the milk, hence the cheese, a slightly salty tang, which is still a characteristic of Cheshire cheese today.


Look out for outstanding traditional cheeses made by Joseph Heler and Son and John Bourne now joined by the new generation of artisan cheese makers like Anne Connelly and Guy Dimelow.


In Altrincham, Clare Burt has created some of the best soft cheeses you’ll ever taste and in the heart of the county the Hope family at Tyrseford Guernsey Gold produce natural yoghurt and brie that simply can’t be bettered.


Another familiar favourite is Mornflake, which has been milling oats in the South Cheshire countryside since 1675, making them the longest established miller of oats and cereal in the UK.


Cheshire's wine is earning a growing reputation for quality of taste too thanks to the most northerly vineyard in Europe at Carden Park Golf Resort and Spa


The vineyards are open to visitors and hotel guests can enjoy the vintage wines.
