Attention fellow cheese lovers: Stratfords’s East Village is hosting a free Cheese and Wine Festival this weekend. Think samples, demonstrations, wines and cheese-spiration to the max.
The East Village Cheese and Wine Festival will not only play host to over 25 cheese-making/utilising stallholders but welcome wine expert Tim Atkin, chef Valentina Harris, chocolatier Paul Wayne Gregory, and Great British Bake Off contestant Tom Gilliford to host exclusive demos and tastings over the 1st and 2nd.
The former Athletes’ Village of the London 2012 Games could not have whipped up a better programme; cheese sculpting competitions, sparkling wine & cheese pairings, rarebit demonstrations, endless tastings, cheesy Churros Garcia, street food (from Arancini Brothers, Jacob’s Ladder & French Comte), a cheesy pop quiz, and more – all culminating in an exclusive three course “Cheese Feest: on Sunday at Tina We Salute You (a preview of which I was lucky to experience, as you can see here – don’t miss out)
Ahem, the diet starts Monday…
