The Fine Cheese Co. Belgravia is Officially a Great Friend to the Community

NewFriend-Belgravia_Awards_2018_091.jpeg

Our cheese shop on Motcomb Street was recently put forward for the New Friend category at the Belgravia Awards and we’re pleased to announce that our team won.

The Fine Cheese Co. Belgravia was awarded New Friend by celebrity chef, Marcus Wareing. This honour goes to a business that has relatively recently joined the Belgravia community and has impressed by immersing itself in the community.

We’re incredibly happy to have been picked as the winner of this great accolade and will be doing all we can to continue helping the local community of Belgravia, especially when it comes to the cheeses on their cheeseboards.

Red Wine Farmer a hit

Our cheeses also took centre stage on the night too as part of a small stall, with Red Wine Farmer being a huge favourite among attendees. No doubt its creamy back note and silky-smooth texture had a lot do with this cheese’s popularity.

The Belgravia Awards, organised by Belgravia Magazine, took place at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower on 17th January 2018 and celebrate the local community by recognising the efforts of people and companies that have made a positive contribution to local life. 

Meet the Cheese-maker: La Baronia

Mozzarella

 

Think you’ve tried Buffalo Mozzarella or Burrata? Think again!

We firmly believe that our La Baronia Buffalo Mozzarella and Burrata is unlike any you will have tasted before. There’s not a trace of acidity, but in its place, is a taste of great subtlety and delicacy with a gentle, creamy finish.

We’re so confident about this that we have invited La Baronia’s very own Giuseppe Cutillo into our shops on 7th and 8th June to chat about the Buffalo Mozzarella and Burrata he makes with his fair hands.

La Baronia embodies the purity and goodness of buffalo milk. Their fertile pasture is rich in wetland species, that gives the milk its delicate taste and unique aroma. The Cutillo family started La Baronia 30 years ago.

They began by researching the working methods of the buffalo dairymen, practices that had been handed down since the eighth Century, when buffalos first arrived in Campania.

Animal husbandry is everything to the family. To keep the buffalo happy and healthy in the hot Summer climate, the animals "swim" several times a day in large water tanks. How cool is that? 

So, if you’re in Bath or London over the following days, please do stop by.
