Cheese making at home with Gavin Webber

    LGC103 - Dan Leighton, from Extinct Cheeses to Medieval Re-enactments

    LGC103 - Dan Leighton, from Extinct Cheeses to Medieval Re-enactments

    During a consultation session, Dan contacted me in 2023 to ask about making cheeses from the medieval period.  This piqued my interest, so I invited him onto the podcast to discuss his interest in reviving extinct UK cheeses and making cheese during medieval re-enactments.

Number One Cheese Podcast

Inspirational, motivational, incredible knowledge of cheese history and production, a great teacher with a twist of Aussie humor and an all round nice guy who knows his cheese. I’ve been listening to Gavin for many years now and gained so much knowledge and inspiration from just listening to his podcasts. If you’re interested in cheese, Gavin is your man.

An excellent guide to artisan cheese!

I recently became aware of Gavin’s lovely YouTube channel and podcast and it’s been incredible. His competence and comprehensive explanations leave you craving more. Much like a good cheese! Cheers Gavin!
