Cheese Street N1.
It’s the closest thing we’re going to get to a yellow brick road.
And it’s coming to Islington this Sunday, and the following Sunday (October 1st). You’ll find it at Chapel Market Junction, where dozens of traders will be showing off their curdy wares in all their infinite variety. Here’s what you’ll find:
There are two sides to Cheese Street. On the one hand, you’ll find cheesemongers from both within London and further afield, like La Fromagerie, Kupros Dairy, Quickes Dairy, Blackwoods Cheese and Wildes Cheese, who’ll be selling hunks of the good stuff to take home with you.
But interspersed with all this, you’ll also find cheesy street food from stalwarts like the Raclette Brothers, Mac to the Future, Grill My Cheese, The Cheese Truck and The Poutinerie. That should set you in good stead to get into –
As if perusing an entire avenue of cheese wasn’t entertaining enough, they’re also laying on a couple of special events. On the first Sunday, you’ll find butter-making masterclasses and a cheese and artisan cider pairing with CellarMan Sam; while the following week will boast workshops on putting together the perfect cheese board with Pistachio and Pickle Dairy, plus a lesson from La Fromagerie founder Patricia Michaelson, who’ll be teaching you how to create a speed-fondue in five minutes…
Still need convincing? Well, the organisers at the London Farmers’ Markets are joining forces with Black Cow Vodka, the worlds first pure milk vodka (yes, vodka made from milk) who will be offering the first 50 guests complimentary sample bottles.
Other highlights include dedicated cheese angels who will be walking around with endless Edam samples, a competition to win a tower of cheese from the Tottenham-based Wildes Cheese, and plenty of curd-based games and cheesy music.
Maybe even a little R’n’Brie.
NOTE: Cheese Street runs from 10am to 3pm on 24th September and 1st October, and is free entry. You can find out more right HERE.
