To mark British Cheese Week, Chelsea restaurant Papillon and South Kensington cheese shop La Cave a Fromage have teamed up to create a six course menu – with every dish featuring a different British cheese.

Head chef Tom Hempstead (Papillon), working with fromagerie Todd Bridge (La Cave a Fromage), have created the menu that takes diners on a tour of some country’s finest cheese offerings.

The menu, priced at £48 per head, will be available at Papillon throughout British Cheese Week (26 September-4 October)
