“Their cheeky banter put the ‘blue’ in blue cheese”


WHERE Wildes Cheese, 33 Queen Street, Tottenham, London N17; THE COURSE Cheesemaking, £135 (10am to 4.30pm; includes lunch, tea and a lot of cheese to take home)


Wildes Cheese is on a small industrial estate in north London. If this doesn’t shout ‘rural idyll’, rest assured that the urban setting conceals a quite magnificent cathedral of cheesemaking. The business was started in 2012 by Philip Wilton and his partner Keith Sides, after Philip was made redundant from his management consulting job. The two still head up this award-winning cheesemaking outfit.


Phil and Keith love a disco soundtrack, and enjoy putting the ‘blue’ in blue cheese with their cheeky, somewhat sweary banter.

You don’t need any prior experience to enjoy a day here. The course takes place in the dairy itself, so it’s not built for comfort, but there’s ample opportunity to sit down, chat and ask questions via plentiful coffee and biscuit stops. Keith produced several of their creations for us to sample, including londonshire, a glorious punchy puddle you could scoop up with a spoon. We also spent time handling and tasting cheeses at various stages of development.
