My Year Without Dairy

I’ve got a secret to share: until last week, I hadn’t actually eaten cheese for a whole year. A cheesemaker not eating cheese, you ask? Scandal afoot? Well, no, but in July 2019 I got some unwelcome news: my six-week-old baby had a sensitive milk protein allergy and, as she was breastfed, I had to exclude all dairy and soya (including goat and sheep’s milk) from my diet. So began my year without cheese. The irony of this happening to a cheesemaker and dairy farmer was not lost on me, but I was initially quite stoical about it; it wasn’t like I usually glugged down glasses of milk, and surely it was a small price to pay for my daughter being happy and healthy. What I didn’t know at that time
