Chiswick Cheese Market, Sunday 19 September 2021

Guest blog by Donna Freed

Our 19 September Cheese Market is set to be the best yet!

We are hosting our first Cheesewick event to coincide with the next Cheese Market on 19 September, an exploration of Irish cheese with the Queen of Irish Cheese, Marianne Kelly of Heritage Cheese (who will be selling their cheeses as usual).

The mission of Heritage Cheese is to unearth forgotten traditional recipes and discover today’s innovative cheesemakers throughout the Brittish Isles and Ireland. Marianne will introduce you to the history of her native Ireland’s most interesting new and historic cheeses. The unique landscape and weather of Ireland has shaped its agricultural practices and has given rise to some extraordinary cheeses. The legendary rain is one of the driving factors but is always counterbalanced by a bit of sunshine.

The generous tasting will be enhanced by exceptional Italian wines from Villa Sandi (The Crown 12.00pm). Get tickets on Eventbrite here.

Mont d’Or is coming! Mont d’Or is coming! The French Comtè are bringing this alpine wonder that is only available this time of year after the cows have spent the summer in the high alpine pastures. The cheese is wrapped in a band of spruce for added flavour – dig in!

New to the market this month is Chloe’s Cheese Club. Chloe will be bringing samples of the cheeses that she provides in her monthly subscription. ‘My mission,’ says Chloe, ‘is to simply provide you with a shed load of cheese, because I believe it to be the greatest healer and the ultimate treat we all deserve.’ Well, said!

Rooms and Roots are also market newcomers and will be selling all manner of vintage kitchenalia including cheese boards and lovely linens. Francesca sells antique, vintage and decorative pieces for the home and garden.

Make way for Cheese on the Wey! We love local stories and John of Farnham-based Cheese on the Wey is all about local. He has brought his experience of sustainable construction to his passion for cheese making. He has reduced the water, materials and energy in the cheese making process. All his cheeses are made from unpasteurised milk from the close by Pierrepont Farm.

Big Wheel Cheese just got even bigger! Fay has broadened her selection of hand-made British cheeses. Look out for Mayfield and Smoked Mayfield, Baron Bigod, Oxford Isis and Flower Marie to name a few of the goodies she’ll be offering along side the ever popular and delicious Pevensey Blue.

Returning to the market are Marlow Cheese,  makers of Cheesewick – the truffled brie made with truffles from Thee Olive Tree (who also bring the La Latteria cheeses) along with our other regular traders.

Organic farmers Feltham Farms, winners of the Virtual Cheese Awards 2021 – both Best British Cheese and Best Specialty Cheese, Roi The Cheesemonger, with produce from Brindisa and the Trethowan Brothers cheeses. Everything But The Cheese, with their delicious and inventive accoutrements; La Latteria will also have fresh pasta on the stall this month. Get your fill of cheese crackers from Cradocs made in Powys, Wales.
