Cheese Street N1
Londoners prepare as London Farmers Markets bring you an entire festival dedicated to cheese, at Cheese Street N1. Those who are fans of fromage should make their way to the heart of Islington this autumn to celebrate all things cheese for two consecutive Sundays on the 24th September and the 1st October 2017. Situated in the heart of Chapel Market Junction, Cheese Street N1 will feature the best Britain has to offer, welcoming local and sustainable food traders to pop-up for the day. In keeping with London Farmers Market’s ethos, Cheese Street N1 aims to support local and regional cheese makers and mongers, welcoming the likes of award-winning La Fromagerie, Kupros Dairy, Quickes Dairy, Blackwoods Cheese and Wildes Cheese to take part in a day filled with tastings, masterclasses and talks from UK based artisans. Visitors will also be able to try delectable dishes from London street-food sensations including; Raclette Brothers, Mac to the Future, Grill My Cheese, The Cheese Truck and The Poutinerie, who will bring the finest French-Canadian treats to the festival, because who doesn't love chips, cheese and gravy? Other highlights include dedicated cheese angels who will be walking around with endless Edam samples, the cheesiest games around, cheesy music, and even a little R ‘n’ Brie.
Wringer & Mangle Spitalfields
Wringer & Mangle Spitalfields will be the sister bar and restaurant to the original Hackney local hangout, Wringer & Mangle which opened two years ago in London Fields in a disused former laundry. The new project will present hearty seasonal food, a lunchtime deli counter and cocktails to boot, whilst also replicating the successful Bottomless Brunches the London Fields location has become infamous for. Located directly opposite Liverpool Street Station and in the heart of East London’s most vibrant area, Wringer & Mangle Spitalfields will be set over two floors with the top floor providing all-day dining, whilst downstairs promises to be a destination night spot. At the heart of the kitchen, we see Food Director to the group, Paul Gayler MBE, and Head Chef, Peter Tomkinson. With expertise and experience in some of London’s best restaurants, the food will centre around quality produce in a home-cooking style with a laid-back dining setting. Paul and Peter have created a well-balanced menu, with the perfect emphasis on both healthy and heartier plates. The daytime offering is served alongside the deli counter and a more substantial dinner menu. As for downstairs at the new Spitalfields site, the group have partnered with London party people Percolate who will be programming every Thursday and Saturday night. Expect a mix of up-and-coming DJ’s and live music. For your Friday night entertainment, the space will be hosted by the same party people that brought ‘Savage’ club nights to the London nightlife scene. The downstairs bar will transform into Gloria’s house, where you continue the party after those Friday night drinks. Expect wild drag queens, wonderful cocktails and like any house party, a little bit of madness.
