Show Notes

Welcome back to the eighth series of The English Wine Diaries podcast!

Joining me on today’s episode, in the week that we celebrate National Cheese and Wine Day, is author, speaker and cheese and wine expert Steve Parker.  

Having worked for an international brewer and wine distributor, Steve left corporate life to set up an award-winning cheese shop, delicatessen and wine bar in South West London. 

A judge for international food and drink competitions, such as the British, International and World Cheese Awards, Steve now organises food and drink tasting events and is a writer and speaker on his favourite subjects of, you guessed it, cheese and wine, with a particular focus on the cheeses and wines of Great Britain. 

His first book ‘British Cheese on Toast’ was published in 2020 while ‘British Cheesespotting’ is due to be published this August and he also has two more books in the pipeline: ‘British Cheese and Wine Pairing’ and ‘British Winespotting’.
