Nick Haddow is a highly regarded entrepreneur, business innovator and founder of Tasmania’s Bruny Island Cheese Co. which, among other accolades, was awarded the Telstra Australian Business of the Year in 2013.
Nick’s love of traditional food has taken him all around the world. He is a champion of artisan cheese in Australia and a mad-keen advocate for Raw Milk Cheese (which he is happy to rant on about any chance he gets). Now a passionate Tasmanian, he spends much of his time promoting the state and supporting, showcasing and mentoring other artisan producers. His passion for small island living resulted in him being awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2014 to study the small island economies around the world.
Nick’s successful media and writing career includes a co-hosting role in all four series of the SBS TV program Gourmet Farmer, alongside his mate Matthew Evans. He has co-authored The Deli Book ( 2012) and The Gourmet Farmer Goes Fishing (2015) with Matthew Evans and Ross O’Meara, and has recently written down all he knows about cheese in his new book, Milk.Made, which was published internationally in August 2016 to rave reviews and was nominated for a prestigious James Beard Award in 2017.
