Cheese tasting

If you’re a cheese lover, you might like to pop along to Hammonds Deli & Butcher on Saturday 7 December for a cheese tasting. 

‘Pitchfork’, a brand new Somerset Artisan Cheddar, ‘moist, full flavoured and the first new proper old school Cheddar to be made in a generation’ will be available for tasting at midday.

It’s made the traditional way and has won a clutch of awards this year, including Artisan Cheese Awards Gold Organic Cheese and British Cheese Awards Best Traditional Cheddar.

Hammonds will also be offering a delicious Honey & Flower Goat Log and a Stilton Colston Bassett to taste, which would make a richly delicious addition to anyone’s festive cheeseboard. 

Stuart, their wine expert, will be on hand to advise and crack open a couple of bottles of Rioja Crianza Cerro Anon and a Seven Springs Unoaked Chardonnay – the perfect accompaniment to a good Cheddar. 

Hammonds, right beside Kew Bridge, is a member of The Chiswick Calendar’s Club Card scheme.
