Let Me Introduce You with Jane Milton
Let Me Introduce You To Francis Gimblett, author of the Gimblett's Guide to The Best of British Cheese, and Co-Owner of Taste of the Vine, an Interactive Food and Drink Events Business. ,
Francis and I met in Spring 2021 when I joined one of his monthly Friday evening meet the cheesemaker tasting sessions. I learned so much and loved meeting the cheesemakers. I told other people and very quickly was joined on screen by 10-12 friends each month ....
My copy of Francis book , Gimblett's Guide to the Best of British Cheeses has become very well thumbed and through it i have tracked down cheesemakers around the UK and even found a cheesemaking course in Tottenham, London inspired by him.
He is a great story teller so i know you will enjoy hearing about :
- his journey in food and drink
- people who have inspired or encouraged him
- his French mother's cooking and how that added to his food journey
- how he has for many years, resisted repitition and always desired change, t learn or to reinvent things BUT
- how possibly now after almost 2 years of constant change, he my just be happy for a little more predictability for a while
- we talk about work life balance and partnering in business with his wife
- about the importance of understanding your P&L and planning for your business right from Day 1
- we also get a hint or two about his next taste adventure....
I cannot wait
