Join the British cheese revolution, 4-5 November
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 successful debut at Camden Market in May, the London Cheese Project is back at a new venue and with an expanded line up of traders.
Taking place on 4-5 November, the ticketed two-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 20 traders.
Other highlights include four bars selling craft beer from Five Points and Portobello Brewing Co, wine, hot toddies and cheese-themed cocktails, plus live music (including a wandering mariachi band) and two large tents with heaters 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 free live demo area, sponsored by sourdough crispbread specialists Peter’s Yard, with everything from mozzarella-making to an epic Parmesan v. Cheddar ‘crack off’ and the opening of a 70kg German Emmental (expect lederhosen to feature).
