Celebrating cheese, the market in Beaconsfield on Saturday 9 April 2011 will unite over 40 British cheese makers and the legendary Alain Roux, Chef at the Waterside Inn at Bray, will open the event.

Other well-regarded local chefs will be showing off their newest cheeses and interesting ways to cook with cheese. The market represents a rare opportunity to meet the producers themselves and to taste cheeses not always available anywhere else.
