'Little Whallop' cheese makers chosen for selection panel

Former Blur bassist turned cheesemaker Alex James has been chosen as a food expert for the Real Food Festival selection committee.

Alex James and co-cheese producer Juliet Harbutt will be helping handpick artisan food makers to attend the festival, which takes place at London’s Earl’s Court from April 24-27.

Alex James has commented, “Finally someone is taking a stance for the little guys….500 of the best artisan producers under one roof, why wouldn’t I be involved. You know where you’ll find me, at the cheese stand!”

Others on the commitee include Rose Prince, food writer for The Daily Telegraph, Chris Walton, of Pelham Organic Farm and food writer and author Richard Johnson.
