Things to do Carlton

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The dairy devout can worship at La Latteria, a temple to cheese, with an added ‘mozzarella laboratory’.

Ex-chef Kirsty and cheesemonger Giorgio have been stirring vats of curd and stretching mozzarella every day for six years in their no-frills Carlton shop. Try one of the snowy-white orbs bobbing in brine – perhaps a buffalo mozzarella or bocconcini – which they’ll package up in a plastic bag like a goldfish you won at the fair.The voluptuous fior di latte is creamy and delicate; team it with basil and good tomatoes and you’ll be transported to Capri. Gift your friends with their very own mozzarella-making kit ora hamper. Unhomogenised milk (yes, with the cream top) and natural yoghurts make La Latteria all the more compelling.
