About this show

There is a revolution happening in the world of cheese.

We are demanding tastier, more interesting cheeses with distinctive flavours, textures, and aromas. But in order to recognise them we need to know what is out there, and what makes the difference. Cheese Slices will stimulate you to eat, encourage you to travel, and most importantly help you to choose the finest artisan cheese to keep the revolution going.
