Fondue Night with Neal’s Yard & Vin Neuf at The Farm, Stratford

Wine and cheese. Does it get better than that? The Farm just outside Stratford is hosting what they describe as the “ultimate collaboration” and I’m inclined to agree. A night of food pairing, wine tasting and fondue with Neal’s Yard Dairy and The Farm’s own in-house wine merchant Vin Neuf.

You’ll hear about all things British Cheese, while Vin Neuf will be tasting five  different wines specially paired for the evening.

The chefs from Nourish will also be creating the perfect starters and desserts to complement the cheese.
