british cheese awards grater

Last week’s British Cheese Awards were pretty exciting, as you can imagine.

But just in case the cheeses weren’t captivating enough, the organisers got their sponsors, Atlas Packaging, to come up with a ‘mascot’. And here it is! Sadly nameless (Graziano might work), the gigantic grater was on display to the public - who were presumably as enthusiastic about it as the demonstrator pictured here - all week.

As awards founder Juliet Harbutt pleasingly (and inevitably) put it: “It’s grrrrrrrrate.”
