Come and enjoy tasty food and a drink and meet Slow Food members and those interested in a sustainable food system. Market Quarter is the current venue for Slow Food London’s monthly “meet and greet” gatherings. The next one is Wednesday 13 July.
As part of Slow Food Week, “Market Quarter” in Belgravia hosted a tasting of cheese and wine on Thursday 23 June. Slow Food members attended from as far afield as Redhill and Greenwich, as well as central London, and non-members from the local area.
The “Ark of Taste” Artisan Somerset Cheddars were like three siblings - a strong family resemblance, differentiated by three distinctive personality traits – buttery, sharpness and complex maturity in different proportions: Westcombe Farm, Montgomery’s and Keen’s..
Three Italian Presidium cheeses were also tasted: Bitto from Lombardy, and Castelmagno and Lo Puy from Piemonte.
A Barbera d’Asti 2009 “La Vi” was a discovery from the launch of “Slow Wine” in English earlier this year, and was a good match for the cheeses.
£10 members, £12 non-members, payable on the night. Includes a glass of “Slow Wine” and a tasting of organic cheese and salume from Sicily
