Yorkshire food gurus have been on a Tour de Fromage to collect the finest French cheeses ahead of the Grand Depart.
A team of cheesemongers from Cryer and Stott, which is based in Allerton Bywater, visited six French towns and cities which are twinned with Yorkshire towns that the Tour de France will visit during a three-day trip last month.
During their journey the pair showcased a selection of Yorkshire’s best cheeses at the British Embassy in Paris and collected a range of top French fromage. The firm’s director Richard Holmes and business development manager Jemma Flowers have presented a cheese sculpture to Jet2.com, which provided the experts with free flights, as a special thankyou.
Richard said: “This started as a bit of fun, but some other Yorkshire companies got wind of our idea and it’s just snowballed.”
The award-winning company now plans to showcase some of Europe’s best produce at special taster sessions on home soil.
