Join the cheese revolution, 26-28 May 2018
You might not know it, but there’s a revolution taking place in the UK.
Urban cheesemakers are turning milk into mozzarella under railway arches, new wave cheesemongers are pushing the boundaries of counter culture and street food heroes are putting the goo into good times.
In other words, the country’s cheese scene is hotter right now than the molten heart of a grilled cheese sandwich.
After a hugely successful two day festival in Hoxton in November, the London Cheese Project is back for the May summer Bank Holiday with an expanded line up of traders, talks, tastings and cutting edge booze matches.
Taking place on Sat-Mon, 26-28 May, the ticketed three-day festival of fromage will take place outside in the gardens of the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton, East London, bringing together new-wave British cheesemakers and mongers to showcase the country’s very best cheeses.
As well as being able to buy cheese direct from producers, visitors will be able to taste for themselves in unique and gloriously gooey dishes created by London’s leading street food traders. There will also be stalls selling everything you need to create the perfect cheese plate. In total there will be more than 25 traders.
Other highlights include bars selling craft beer, wine, and cheese-themed cocktails, plus live music and two large marquees in case of bad weather.
Plus: CULTURE CLUB – a series of expert tutored tastings from cheese writer and World Cheese Awards judge Patrick McGuigan (click link for more details and tix).
And a live demo area with free talks, tastings and demos on the hour, every hour. Learn more about cheese from the people that make and sell it, including live mozzarella-making, an epic Parmesan v. Cheddar ‘crack off’ and a battle of the blues.
