I'm often asked why I chose to dedicate my life to gastronomy. After all, coming from a comfortable, and some would say filthy rich, family I could have plumped for a far less challenging career. Ultimately for me it came down to the thrill of uncovering moments of food-related delight, and to the pleasure of sharing those findings with the less well informed patrons of my restaurants. And some of my most rewarding areas of gastronomic enlightenment have always come from rare, artisanal cheeses.
At The Last Parsnip we feature a selection of the most exceptional and challenging cheeses available today. We're constantly seeking out new varieties, and pushing our guests beyond their comfort zones. (All done under the umbrella of an appropriate legal waiver of course).
In the following video we've put together a small tasting platter of our current offerings. There's something for everyone here - from the mildly approachable "Humbrian Poacher" to the positively atavistic Dulce de Letchey.
I do hope you enjoy!
