Sweet dreams really were made of cheese as Dickens Yard came alive once again with the first We Love Cheese of the year and we couldn't have asked for better weather... could summer finally be on its way?
With such an epic selection of cheesy street food from the likes of Muffin Man & Co., The Raclette Brothers and Mac to the Future it was hard to decide what to have so we had to have little bit from everyone!
We Love Cheese wouldn't quite be the same without an abundance of cheese and a good old W5 Cheese Cup competition. This is why we decided to spoilt you with even more cheeses from around the world. You tried and learnt all about cheeses from England, France, Italy, Spain, Sardinia, to name a few. It was a close call but the fabulous Bath Soft Cheese claimed the W5 Cheese Cup, cheese board in first place with previous winners Capo Caccia not far behind in second place. Who will claim the prize when we take the festival over the river to Deptford on the 5th May?
This year, we wanted everyone to be able to enjoy We Love Cheese which is why our vegan cheese sellers were a very popular addition to the lineup. Vegan cheese really is delicious!
We didn't stop there. Our Ealing Bites Live talks tent was in full swing with the tastings hosted by Ealing's favourite Grace Dent. A highlight and well anticipated talk of the day was our 'I could never give up cheese...' debate featuring experts in their field.
A massive thank you to our We Love Cheese sponsor Heritage Cheese, our wine partners Park+Bridge and our beer partners Weird Beard Brew Co.
If you missed it, don't worry. We will be back on the 5th May in Deptford Market Yard for even more cheese!
