If you’re in dire need of cheese during self-isolation (that’s everyone, right?), we have good news. Expert in all things cheese Mathew Carver has announced that a fleet of trucks will set off across the capital to deliver dairy-derived products.
Having closed his Pick & Cheese site in Seven Dials due to coronavirus, the founder of The Cheese Bar is putting together ‘self-isolation survival kits’ which can include cheese, wine and charcuterie for two to three people to share.
Our pick of the cheese hampers is The Big Boy, featuring individually wrapped wedges of Quicke’s mature cheddar, perl las and edmund tew, or go for The Meaty Boy, a kit stuffed with spiced salami, rum-glazed ham and smoked coppa. Or both (who knows how long this self-isolation will last?). The cheese-based selection boxes also contain crackers and condiments.
But what’s a night of cheesy dining without some wine to pair it with? Those who fancy ordering a kit can add on a small-producer bottle of wine, too.
The Cheese Truck will be delivering the gouda-ness every day to four different locations in the capital. Locals can sneak out from self-isolation to collect their kit. If you want one, you’ll have to pre-order (and don’t forget to wash your hands, okay?). Keep an eye on the website to see updates on locations.
