Mary Berry and The Big Cheese Making Kit

Towards the end of 2016 The Big Cheese Making Kit was approached by a TV production company asking if we’d be interested in providing one of our Goat’s Cheese Kits for use on a feature they were looking at running. Of course, we said yes.

And that’s before we were told who the Presenter of the show would be. It was the one, the only: Mary Berry!!

I need to say that again.



We were excited. Amazed. We danced around the office and sang songs in her name. It was, for want of a better word, cheesy. So we sent off a Kit as soon as the dancing had finished, and then waited, excitedly, for Mary to produce cheese.

And she did. Oh wow she did!

We’re obviously delighted and very very proud to see Mary have such fun with our cheese making kits. Here’s a sneak preview below:

It really is as quick and easy to make cheese as Mary makes it look. Not only can you make Goat’s Cheese with our Kits, but also Mozzarella, Ricotta, Halloumi, Scottish Crowdie, Queso Blanco, Labner, Paneer and Mascarpone. So much cheese!

Thank you Mary, you’ve made our year!

    Got one of these kits for Christmas and have only just got around to making my first lot of goats cheese. Just as easy as the instructions suggest. I have rolled the cheese cylinders in fresh, finely chopped, garden herbs. They look good on the plate and taste brilliant with some of my wife’s freshly baked ciabatta.
    I can see this being a regular thing from now on.
