Virtual Cheese Tasting with Paxton and Whitfield

Whilst it’s not the same as in-person, I’ve actually loved trying out all kinds of online events over the last few months; quizzes, games, comedy events and music gigs. But, top of the list has to be the virtual cheese tasting with Paxton and Whitfield.
