Cheese events to take place across London in build up to London Cheese Project festival
London Cheese Month, which is being organised by the festival's founders, aims to focus the public's attention on the vibrant world of British cheese, which has been rejuvenated in recent years by a new generation of artisan producers, cheesemongers and street food chefs.
The month-long celebration of cheese will build up to the third London Cheese Project in the beautiful gardens of the Geffrye Museum, which will feature an unparalleled line up of the UK’s best cheesemakers, cheesemongers and street food chefs at the forefront of the British cheese renaissance.
Some of London’s favourite street food traders, who are committed to using artisan cheese, will also be joining the line-up this year, with Mother Flipper, Butchies and The Cheese Truck serving one-off cheesy takes on their usual menus.
Other festival highlights include a full programme of free talks and tastings in the Peter's Yard-sponsored live demo tent on topics such as urban cheesemaking with Gringa Dairy, cheese judging masterclasses and the art of cheddar with Quickes.
The London Cheese Project will also be working with Les Caves De Pyrene and Fourpure to offer a range of natural wines and craft beer in-keeping with the festival’s focus on small producers. Live music and a wall of cheddar are also other features of the festival.
