If your feelings about cheese are anything like ours, all your foodie dreams are about to come true, with a new opening from the team behind The Cheese Bar. Mathew Carver, known for championing the best of British cheese, is ripping up the rulebook with the world’s first cheese conveyor belt at the highly-anticipated Seven Dials Market (from the Capital’s leading street food organisation KERB).
Opening this month, Pick & Cheese will offer a bespoke cheese experience: plate after plate of small producer cheese will wind its way around the restaurant atop a 40 metre-long belt, allowing diners to follow Mathew’s suggested tasting flights, or simply help themselves to the dishes that take their fancy.
The cheese, all sourced from UK-based farms and urban cheesemakers, reflects Mathew’s continued passion for supporting small producers. Each will be paired with an individual condiment – from Coolea with hazelnut brittle, to fresh ricotta with sherry cherries – and handmade ceramic plates will be colour-coded to reflect different prices. There will also be a selection of British charcuterie from Tottenham’s Black Hand Food, and a handful of off-belt hot dishes including classic gooey grilled cheese sandwiches. Meanwhile a list of natural wines from Les Caves de Pyrene has been chosen to pair with the cheeses. Too gouda to be true? We hope not.
