June 11th saw the first ever W5 Food Market: Cheese Fest come to the streets of Ealing. An official event in the Evening Standard London Food Month, our monthly Sunday food market got cheesy for the day.
A glorious day was had by all at our inaugural Cheese Fest. Many thanks to everyone who came along to participate in the Cheese Cup tasting, and to our lovely traders who pulled out all the stops to make it a fabulous day.
It was stiff competition for best cheese, but in the end it was Capo Caccia's pecorino blue cheese 'Ovinforth' who narrowly pipped Andaluz's rosemary manchego 'Flor de Romero'. Special thanks to Ealing's own Abbotshill Wine Bar for a lovely place to relax at the market, and to Northfield's LoveHandmade who provided the winners' cheese board prizes.
