We Love Cheese

We Love Cheese festival is Gouda news for cheese-loving Londoners.

Fromage fiends will be dancing in the streets at this news. A celebration of all things cheese, the imaginatively named We Love Cheese festival will swing into London on wheels of daring dairy later this month. Whilst the name needs a little work, the commitment to cheese is undeniable, as the festival is putting on two dates. And with a delicious smorgasbord of London’s cheese vendors in attendance, you can be assured of some Edamn good eatin’.

We Love Cheese are bringing their brand of melted magic to Ealing on April 22nd. It’s the bigger of the two events, and the lineup is a who’s who of the capital’s cheesiest street food outlets. From the Alps, Raclette Brothers will drizzle their melting Swiss cheese over everything in sight, whilst the punderful Mac to the Future bring the macaroni madness. Pizza do-gooders The Good Slice will serve up seasonal pizzas, whilst the frankly genius concept of halloumi-topped muffins arrive courtesy of Muffin Man & Co.

There’s also the small matter of the We Love Cheese Cup. Basically the FA Cup of cheese, some of the top producers in the country will aim to be crowned champion of cheese. They’ll need your votes though, which necessitates a tasting element of this challenge. Meanwhile, the bevs are on hand from Weird Beard Brew Co and Park & Bridge wines.

We Love Cheese will run their second event on May 5th in Deptford, which is making a quiet play to be the capital’s next foodie destination. Having recently welcomed the new Deptford Bites market, cheese fever will strike when May rolls around. Raclette Brothers and Mac to the Future will make the journey south, and they’ll be joined by the meltmeisters of south London, Meltsmiths. You’ll also find Original Fry Up Material and What the Fattoush serving food, whilst Deptford Market traders will also join the fun.

Yes, we know you Camembert the excitement. And if you’re worried you can’t Roquefort it, don’t fret. Both We Love Cheese events are free to attend, but you’ll need to pay to partake in the We Love Cheese Cup. It’s a Monterey of sunshine in an expensive city – but will it be Le Grand Fromage of London cheese festivals?

Find the We Love Cheese festival at Dickens Yard, Ealing, W5 2XA on April 22nd between 11am and 4pm. It will be at Deptford Market Yard, Deptford, SE8 on May 5th, between 10am and 4pm.
