Wildes Cheese, Tottenham

Cheesy Tottenham TV

A recent episode of the BBC’s James Martin: Home Comforts features local cheese producers, Wildes Cheese. If you missed the broadcast, you can still catch up on iPlayer (below) until the middle of February.

The cheeses range from Highcross (“salty, mild, creamy and crumbly”) to Smoked Londonshire (“soft and runny cheese held together by a white velvety coat”).

The St Bruce brings another local on to the stage, being “given a regular drink of Redemption brewery’s Hopspur to create the coat”. They will even make Poutine Curds to order to help make the perfect hangover cure the day after too much Redemption.

Cheeses at Tottenham Green Market

Tottenham Green market returns

One of the highlights of this summer was Tottenham Green Market, and from this coming Saturday it is back!

However it has moved up the road a little bit to the car park of Tottenham Chances Arts & Music centre.

Tottenham Green Market promises to offer “the best in local eating, drinking and shopping. Visitors can buy delicious fresh bread, cakes, charcuterie, jams, chutneys and cheeses – all made in the neighbourhood – plus rare breed beef, lamb and pork and seasonal vegetables from slightly further afield.

“For breakfast/brunch/lunch there are Caribbean delights, Steak Frites, Indian treats, slow cooked meat sandwiches, cupcakes and loads more.”

Cheese suppliers Wildes Cheese are one of the finalists in this year’s Urban Food Awards. The market will also feature honey from Tottenham Marshes – now that is shopping local.

And of course local favourites Craving Coffee will be keeping us caffeinated.

Tottenham food and drink party raises money for Markfield Project

Presented by Craving Coffee & tottenhamlife.co.uk with ticket proceeds to The Markfield Project and including Meet the Brewer from Redemption Brewery, the TEAM TOTTENHAM PARTY looks like an event well worth supporting.

It takes place this Thursday evening at the cosy Craving Coffee – who have been making quite a stir locally with their themed events. The coffee’s not bad either!

The organisers describe what’s behind the night:

“We love Tottenham and its passionate community spirit. We want to celebrate it with a Team Tottenham party in our cafe, at The Mill Co. Project.

We’ll have our good friends from Redemption Brewery as guests for Meet the Brewer, with a chance to learn more about and samples their beers. Our menu that night will celebrate all things Tottenham, with dishes being made from Wildes Cheese, Flourish Bakery and Crop Drop Vegetables.

£5 entry, with proceeds going to The Markfield Project, a community centre in Markfield Park that promotes dignity, choice, independence and community inclusion of Disabled people and their families.

6 November 2014 from 6pm to 11pm
Location: Craving Coffee, Markfield Rd

SambalShiok Malaysian bun

Mouth watering Tottenham Green Market launches this Saturday

Tottenham gets six weeks* of foodie delights starting this Saturday with the launch of Tottenham Green Market.

The delicious grilled cheese toasties by Grill My Cheese will be there as will the incredible looking Malaysian buns from Sambal Shiok (pictured), steak sandwiches from Beef & Liberty, Aji Ceviche, You Doughnut!, and Dalston’s White Rabbit.

The market is a new launch but it comes with a pedigree, being brought to us by Harringay Market founder Jessica Vos and Street Feast organiser Adam Layton.

There will also be cakes, craft beers, coffee, pickles, (more) cheese and other goodies – with the market being hotly anticipated by the Evening Standard and The Londonist.

The market runs on Tottenham Green from 10am till 3pm. See the latest details via Tottenham Green Market on twitter.

Tottenham_cake

Tottenham cake star of Bake Off

Tottenham cake was one of the stars of this week’s Great British Bake Off.

For anyone unaware of this local delicacy, it is type of tray-baked sponge cake topped with pink icing.

It was originally produced by a local baker, the Quaker Henry Chalkley and sold for one old penny per slice, with offcuts only a half penny. The pink colouring reportedly stems from the use of mulberries which grew in the garden of the Tottenham Friends Meeting House.
