Sarah is offering a taste of something ‘a little bit different’
SPECIALIST cheeses, wines and artisan breads will be a high street treat for Knutsford people when a new shop opens its doors.
The Cheese Yard will be a new addition to King Street when Sarah Peak opens her first business in the Cotton Shop Yard off King Street.
Despite its title the shop will not be selling just cheese, instead offering bread, wine, chutneys, olives and much more.
For those who want to taste the produce in the shop, Sarah has created a cafe area for people to sit down and enjoy what is on offer.
Sarah, who has worked in the food industry all her career, said she had targeted Knutsford as it was a ‘destination’ town for visitors.
“I’m passionate about cheese and wine and have always wanted to run my own business,” she said.
“I wanted the shop to be in a good area and to make sure it was place where I could add to what the town offers.
“I will offer local produce, and you will be able to take away or sit down in the cafe area.
“I live in Poynton so I wanted somewhere which was easy to commute to, and felt I needed somewhere where people come and visit the town, not just the locals, and that’s the value of having places like Tatton Park nearby.
“It’s also a little bit different to the other towns in the area.”
Sarah told the Guardian it won’t be a conventional cafe.
“It won’t just be a cafe, I’m not going to have a big list,” she added.
“It will be a tasting cafe, and you will be able to come in and have three or four different cheeses and have it with a glass of wine or some local beer.
“Most of the products made will be from produce sold.”
What is her favourite cheese?
“I really like a Montgomery Cheddar or a Gorgonzola Dolce,” she said.
The shop is expected to open in November and Sarah has positions available.
