So what could possibly be better than cheese? Well, how about an all you can eat cheese extravaganza in a local establishment.

That’s exactly what’s coming to Pie & Ale in the Northern Quarter, courtesy of the good people at Homage2Fromage (which is a great name).

Due to massive demand, the award-winning Northern cheese company is continuing to provide its cheesy repertoire in Manchester and the surrounding suburbs.

Homage2Fromage was started in Leeds by Nick Copland and Vickie Rogerson back in 2011, before expanding to Sheffield, Harrogate and Manchester.

According to the website: “The aim of the club is to celebrate great cheese in an informal fun way – this is not about snobby cheese and wine tastings, it is about sharing one of the greatest foods ever, in a simple, relaxed way. Homage2Fromage helps you discover new cheese, meet like-minded cheese fans and hear some of the amazing stories behind cheese and cheesemaking.”

The next Mancunian event will be a night of Scottish Cheese, and is happening at Pie & Ale on January 20th.

There’s loads more cheese parties happening as well, so have a look on their website for more info and events.
