Last week I had to say my goodbyes to the Fergusons and Gubbeen Cheese, and begin my trip to London. I spent Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday last week in London. Thursday and Friday I spent at Neal's Yard, one of the world's top cheese shops, working in the Arches. The Arches is where they receive and take care of all the cheese that Neal's Yard sells. They have four aging rooms for soft ripened and mold ripened cheese and one large room for aging hard cheeses. I was also able to get a tour of their shop located in the Borough Market. When I wasn't at Neal's Yard, I was out exploring the city. I was able to see many of the London sites, including: Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Tower of London, and the Globe. This week I will take the train to Quickes Cheddar located in South Western England. Another adventure!
