Cambridge Cheese Expert Eleanor Gale will be Greatly Missed
Eleanor Gale, the last-known traditional Cambridge cheesemaker, has passed away and her cheesemaking endeavors will sadly not be carried on. One of her specialities was Cottenham cheese, a soft cheese said to resemble Camembert.
Her husband Bob said: “She was skilled and knowledgeable and her cheese-making demonstrations were very popular and well attended.
“She was often called by the local BBC radio station for advice on cheese and dairy products, and even made a television appearance making cheese for the chef Brian Turner.”
