The best bit of any fancy meal out is the cheese.
I think that’s an undisputed fact.
But the problem comes when, three courses down, you’re so full that you can’t even stomach a mouthful of cheddar or a crumb of cracker.
Stuffing Stilton into your socks or Bishops’ Stinky Feet down your blouse is never a good idea and it always takes at least three sittings to do a proper cheese board justice.
So what is the answer? How can you make time to give the cheese board the attention it really deserves?
Turn it into your full time job.
It sounds like a hoax but it is 100% true that Manchester based delivery experience company, Sorted, have just announced their campaign to find an assistant to their in-house Director of Cheese.
This exciting new job opening has arisen after one of the company’s employee reward initiatives got so popular that it got a little out of hand.
Cheesy Tuesday is run by the current Director of Cheese and is a regular highlight of Sorted’s social calendar in which staff come together to sample cheeses and choose their favorite.
Once hired, the lucky assistant will help out with the coordination of these monthly events and will be tracking down other cheeses from around the world to add to the company’s selection.
They will also play an important part in the organisation of Sorted’s cheeseboard event at Retail Week Tech at the end of this year, curating and compiling the cheese selection to be offered by investing some serious time in testing.
Since launching from the kitchen table of founder David Grimes’ parents, 8 years later, Sorted now have a team of over 100 employees based in Albert Square, Manchester.
Describing their ideal candidates, the company writes “we’re always looking for inventive, determined, like-minded problem-solvers to join us and help create magic. Only the extraordinary need apply.”
One specific requirement, however, is that the successful candidate “will have an in-depth knowledge of both domestic and foreign cheese and will understand how to balance flavours for varying tastes and pallets.”
Candidates will also have to demonstrate their understandings of the difference between a chutney and a jam and whether the cheese in question should be paired with grapes or with tomatoes.
