New in at the Chiswick Cheese Market

It was a beautiful day at The Cheese Market on Sunday 20 March and we had a full house of traders both regular and new.
Among the new …

Roi brought some fantastic Spanish cheeses with him and I was lucky enough to be able to buy one of the ‘Queso de Untar Cremoso’ – these white rinded spheres contained the most unctuous delishousness I have ever encountered.
It’s a sheep cheese made with thistle rennet so you get some complex floral aromas as well the incredible taste. Not too strong, just well balanced and perfect for dipping with bread sticks.

I also tried the Yorkshire Pecorino from James Grant – the very knowledgeable owner of No. 2 Pound St. This sheep’s cheese was aged for eight months and tasted nutty as well as having some nice acidity and piquancy. Really very good indeed on a cheeseboard or grated onto pasta.

Lastly I bought a piece of Cornish Jack from new trader – Deli No. 5. This is an Emmental style cheese made by artisan cheesemakers near Port Isaac. It was supple and milky with a slight sweetness balanced by a fruity tang. I will be buying it again!

The next market is Sunday 17 April – Easter Sunday – come and buy your Easter cheeseboard early – we open at 9.30am. As it is Easter, there will be an Easter activity for children. Join the big hunt among the cheese stalls, with a prize for every completed entry.
HUGE thank you to all who bought from our pre-loved cookbook stall – we raised £500 for the Ukraine DEC appeal.
