Maida Vale Baby

Maida Vale is made by Anne Wigmore and her family, of Village Maid cheeses in Berkshire. Village Maid was launched by Anne in 1986 after she had worked for the National Institute for Research in Dairying for 10 years. She began in microbiological development and then learning the craft of cheese making in their research dairy. Anne took a brief sabbatical in Sardinia and fell in love with the native Pecorino so upon return home, started creating her own English version. Since then, a small range of other cheeses have been created, including Heckfield, Wigmore, Maida Vale and Waterloo. The Maida Vale was created by Anne’s son and his partner after they joined the business in 2017. 

Maida Vale is a semi soft, rind washed cheese made with Guernsey cow’s milk. It is washed with Soundwave, an IPA from the local Siren Craft Brewery, which gives the cheese a tangy, bittersweet and malty flavour. The cheese has a buttery texture with a fantastic creaminess below the rind and has an earthy depth of flavour and slight saltiness on the rind.

This cheese is aged for 6-8 weeks and is made with thermised cow’s milk and vegetarian rennet.
