say cheese

April 16, 2021

As a kid, I spent my Friday afternoons handpicking candy from glass jars at Wormley Wheelers in South Kensington. This local sweet shop –– home to all the penny sweets imaginable ––  was the high point of my week. Fast forward 35-years, and this gorgeous cheese shop would be my grown up version of Wormley Wheelers. With as many cheese varieties as Wormley’s had sweets, Formaje in Madrid, is a turophile’s paradiso. The Tablas de Quesos are so beautiful I’d frame one. And the shop itself –– designed by Cobalto Studio –– is breathtaking. Owner, Clara Diez calls herself a “cheese activist”; improving industry standards, and maintaining a positive impact on the community, and the environment, at large, are central to the company’s ethos. Every Friday may be a stretch, but worth a visit one day.
