This year, 2727 entries were staged within the main BBC Good Food Show Winter, NEC, Birmingham with judging taking place on 26 November 2015. 250 experts from around the world worked in teams of four, identifying medal-winning cheeses through the morning. Each team awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze or ‘no award’ to each cheese on its own merits. At the end of the session each team selected their favourite cheese – the Super Gold.
