George & Joseph Cheesemongers vs Mario Olianas: Cheesemaking & Mongering during covid

The last year has been a challenge for both cheesemakers and cheesemongers alike. Join Nick Chandler from Leeds-based cheesemongers George & Joseph in conversation with Mario Olianas – maker of a growing range of Sardinian-style cheeses with a Yorkshire twist. They’ll talk about the challenges of the last year, how both businesses have adapted during lockdown, and what the future holds for Mario and his plans for his growing cheesemaking empire.
