At Woombye Cheese, they don’t just make cheese - they create an experience to be shared and there’s nothing better than sharing it with friends. That’s why they’ve included some of our most well-known friends (aka Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey) in their Cheese Masterclass, helping you understand cheese in a way you’ll never forget.
Smell, taste and touch your way through our cast of 6 and see how each cheese has a personality that you’re sure to recognise!
