Cheese Journeys’ British Cheese Odyssey for Connoisseur Magazine Readers

By Monte Mathews 


Connoisseur Magazine Readers Can Save Hundreds on an Exclusive Culinary Adventure!!

For someone who loves to travel and does so every chance I get, there are some trips that live on in memory long after I’ve come home.  Onto that list, I have to put Cheese Journeys’ British Cheese Odyssey at the very top. It’s a spectacular way to spend five days exploring England’s magnificent countryside from London and back. And I have a spectacular offer for Connoisseur readers. You can take this luxury trip March 30th to April 3, 2020 and you can take £400 Sterling or $500 US off just by mentioning Connoisseur Magazine!  


Put a British Cheese Odyssey on your travel schedule and money in your pocket.

You hardly have to be a Cheese Head to enjoy every minute of your Odyssey. After all, who doesn’t want to sample life in a glorious English country house owned by the Montgomery Family, arguably the most iconic Cheddar makers in the country. North Cadbury Court is magnificent!  You can swim in its indoor pool, shoot clay pigeons, paddle boat race in its private lake—even shoot golf balls off the mansion’s roof! Traveling with the group is your own private French chef, Sylvain Jamois, who not only cooks but also shares his culinary wizardry in cooking demonstrations. There’s a food photography class and a cheese painting class taught by Mike Geno, a world-renowned painter of—you guessed it—cheese.


Oh to be in England now that April’s there!

Your adventure starts in London. More precisely in Borough Market home of Neal’s Yard Dairy, a company that can be credited with supporting and, in some cases, saving England’s great Cheese Makers.  You’ll have a crash course on England’s award-winning Cheddar, Cheshire, Stichelton and, of course, Stilton. Then you’ll head to Somerset through the breathtaking English countryside. In Somerset, the birthplace of Cheddar, as well as the purported location of King Arthur’s Camelot, the exquisitely restored North Cadbury Court awaits. 

Live as if to the Manor born at North Cadbury Court

Your four-night stay will introduce you to renowned cheesemakers and affineurs. You’ll meet Jamie Montgomery himself, as he guides you into his family’s world of cheese. You’ll see the dairy, the pastures of Jersey cows, the legendary ruins of Camelot.  You’ll sample Camembert-style Tunworth, delightful chevre and sheep’s milk cheeses. There’s Cider Brandy to sample at a visit to Tom Calver’s award-winning Westcombe Cheddar. There, the young cheesemaker also produces Duckett’s Aged Caerphilly and Somerset Ricotta.

Your tasting is paired with craft beers from Wild Beer Company, one of England’s best Ales. A highlight of your stay is a “Cheesemakers Dinner”.  Here you will enjoy a magnificent feast prepared by Chef Sylvain Jamois and attended by Britain’s cheese doyens from all over the country. This narrated evening of cheese pairings is truly the culmination of your extraordinary British Cheese Odyssey.
