European Cheese Symposium

The Dairy Council is hosting a cheese symposium on 10th May at the Merchant Hotel, Belfast

International experts including an archaeologist, food historian, super–taster, neuroscientist and dairy marketing specialists will explore our European cheese culture – past, present and future including:

  • History of cheese – from the prehistoric origins of cheese–making in Ireland and continental Europe through the Medieval high point to the 17th and 18th century decline and modern revival.
  • Science of taste – exploring the scientific basis of what makes cheese delicious including new and innovative sensory evaluations, flavour maps and food pairings
  • Cheese culture in Europe today – current consumption patterns and trends,  the place of cheese in a modern lifestyle and opportunities for the future.

The symposium will be chaired by cook and food writer Trish Deseine

It will begin at 9:30am (with registration from 9:00am) and finish at 1:15pm with a buffet lunch.
