Jeremy Evrard is obsessed with milk, and therefore cheese. “Each one has its own identity,” he says. “It’s important for me to see how they’re made, where they are made, and how these elements create its character.” In Hong Kong, Evrard has made a name for himself by pushing for higher standards of cheeses—we can credit him for shaping the now-legendary Caprice cheese cellar, and at Philippe Orrico’s On Dining and Upper Modern Bistro where he now works as general manager.

Watch the video above to see how Evrard would serve some of the UK’s best cheeses.
