Maida Vale


A semi-soft, washed-rind cheese made from unpasteurised Guernsey cow’s milk with a vegetarian rennet. The rind is washed with Soundwave, a local IPA from Siren Craft Brewery which produces tangy, bittersweet, malty notes on the palate and a buttery soft texture.

Maida Vale incorporates a “washed-curd” method, whereby during the make, some of the whey is removed and replaced with water. This results in a less acidic cheese which is milder in flavour than a traditional brie or camembert. By removing some of the lactic acid, the breakdown is slower, which also helps to create a slightly firmer, fudgey texture with more bite.

We are very proud of the locality of this cheese and the sustainability of its production. The Guernsey milk travels just 2 miles from our local farm, Heckfield Park Farm, and Soundwave is brewed just 5 miles from our dairy, meaning the carbon footprint is extremely low.

“It gets a kick from the ale, its earthy, hoppy character contributing to a satisfying salty edge.”Patricia Michelson, La Fromagerie
