After nearly two years of never knowing what’s round the next corner, locking and unlocking, mask wearing and not mask wearing my only resolution this year was to have no resolutions at all but to simply enjoy life and make the most of things as they came along. And so, I find myself in the middle of January, when I would normally be trying a new fad diet and embarking on a weird fitness regime simply saying ‘bring on the cheese!’ – join us on 16 January for the first ‘Cheesewick’ market of 2021.
Our favourites are with us – Ewa will be bringing her 36 month old Parmesan, Heritage Cheese with their wonderful selection of fantastic British and Irish Artisan cheeses, and James from no. 2 Pound Street with his carefully curated selection of what is the best of the best this month. Don’t forget Fay from Big Wheel cheese, Roi with Caerphilly and Cheddar, Olives and charcuterie from The Olive bar. The French Comte has the very best of all the Alpine mountain cheeses and please don’t forget to bring your empty milk bottles along and get a re-fill of fresh milk straight from Dorset Dairy – they will have their yoghurts and butter too!

All the very best cheeses from around the country, extras, accoutrements and a world of gorgeousness on offer this Sunday. 9.30am – 3pm.
We are very excited to announce a new collaboration with the fantastic recipe site CKBK (www.ckbk.com). Matt with be on hand to talk to everyone about his very special website offering 1000s of recipes from cookery books both old and new and we are thrilled that we will feature a cheese recipe from his huge selection on our website every month. So, click on our website for our recipe of the month for January but come and see Matt in real life at the market and discover a mountain of recipes at your fingertips once you get back to the comfort of your lovely warm kitchen.
And if you fancy making it a real cheesy day out when you visit the cheese market pop into the Roebuck on the High Road for their Apres Ski bar serving fondue, raclette and mountains of melted cheese or what about the new Tartiflette on offer at Cote on Turnham Green Terrace – and don’t forget our very own Cheeswick burger only available at Honest Burger. Chiswick is really becoming ‘Cheesewick’ every 3rd Sunday of the month!
I think that the last two years has shown us all that life is too short for quick fixes and fads and we all should be making the most of each day so join me and simply ‘bring on the cheese!’
