‘Hard cheese’ to us all! – 17 July Cheese Market cancelled due to heatwave

By Lucy Cufflin

It is with heavy hearts we have to let you know that Chiswick Cheese Market is cancelled this month due to the forecast of intense heat on Sunday 17th June.

We do not have access to any electricity at the Market Place on the High Road and without power, our traders simply cannot bring their precious cheeses to us. Like us, I am sure that you love the batches of cheese perfection they bring to us each month and this extraordinary heatwave can simply ruin the cheese……… the traders are sad, we are sad and we are sure you are sad too but without electricity it is, as I say it is just ‘hard cheese’!

We have been in discussions with Hounslow but in the short term at least, it seems there is nothing that can  be done, but we are hopeful for a long term solutions so watch this space!

I thought we would share a couple of summer recipe ideas so that you can enjoy some cheese at home – of course fresh mozzarella or burrata with summer tomatoes and balsamic is never to be under-rated but what about changing it up a little?
