Vacherin Night @ London Cheesemongers
To celebrate the return of everyone's favourite winter cheese, London Cheesemongers are hosting a night dedicated to Vacherin...
Vacherin Mont d’Or is produced in the Franche-Comte region of Eastern France between late August and March every year. Made during the colder months when the cows are brought down the mountain side to see out the winter, historically it was a practical means to an end. The first Autumn snows in the Jura mountains prevented the smaller farmers from transporting their milk to the co-operative of Comte producers in the area. This led to the development of a smaller, soft cheese that they could make in their own kitchens. And so Vacherin was born. Sancey Richard are one of the smallest Mont d’Or producers in France and their commitment to tradition and attention to detail results in the best Vacherin we can get our hands on.
It’s a cheese that elicits memories of winter holidays in the mountains, or sharing spoonfuls of baked, oozing goodness with a bottle of wine and good friends. We can’t bring the mountains to London, but we can do the rest.
A ticket to Vacherin Night at London Cheesemongers entitles two of you to a baked Vacherin with potatoes, sourdough bread and crisp pickles to accompany, plus a bottle of house wine, beer or cider to share. Additional drinks can be purchased on the night. A brief introduction to the cheese and selected wines will precede an informal cheese feast around our family-style table.
As alcohol will be served, all guests must be 18 or over. TICKET PRICE IS FOR TWO PEOPLE.
