Cheese Your Way
These delicious recipes are part of the Cheese Your Way campaign launched earlier this year by the National Dairy Council in partnership with the European Milk Forum. Cheese Your Way is an EU-funded multi-country campaign that aims to encourage people to cook with, eat and learn more about a diverse range of European cheeses.
NDC is passionate about quality dairy and promoting its nutritional benefits, so they were the perfect partner for our upcoming cheesy events. If you want to find out more about this EU campaign, called Cheese Your Way, click here. For more recipe ideas go to ndc.ie
