Live from the World Cheese Awards in San Sebastián

In November 2016 we turned the 29th World Cheese Awards into a live Event TV channel.

Presented by Nigel Barden and Jo Pickard, World Cheese Awards TV followed all the exciting action at the most prestigious awards event in cheese, which was staged this year in San Sebastián as part of the International Cheese Festival. The channel was streamed live online where it was watched by viewers from all over the globe.

Organised by the Guild of Fine Food, the World Cheese Awards drew entries from 31 different countries this year, from Australia to Italy and Mexico to Mozambique. Cheese of all shapes and sizes made their way to the Kursaal Congress Centre where 266 cheese experts tasted and graded over 3,000 cheeses in a single day, giving Bronze, Silver, Gold and Super Gold awards to worthy entries.

The final judging panel then debated the top 16 cheeses in front of a trade and consumer audience, broadcast live on World Cheese TV, before crowning this year’s World Champion Cheese.
