SquareMeal Review of Champagne + Fromage Covent Garden

It started as the French Bubbles pop-up, but Champagne + Fromage has now planted its feet firmly in Covent Garden where it serves up an inspiring range of small-grower fizz alongside Gallic cheeses, charcuterie, tartines and seasonal specials such as frogs’ legs tempura with Roquefort sauce. You’re unlikely to recognise the names on the Champagne labels, but with weekly by-the-glass selections and friendly, knowledgeable staff on hand to talk you through every intriguing bottle, you’ll uncover new treats on every visit. A dry, savoury Michel Furdyna Rosé NV perfectly balanced the flavours of our spicy charcuterie and a tartine loaded with smoky Montbéliarde sausage, morbier cheese and shallot confit, while sweet treats include chocolate fondant with bleu des Basques cheese. The relaxed vintage-styled setting is ideal for a pre/post-theatre bite, but all the fromage and fizz is also available to take out.

Grana Padano

Grana Padano has become the world’s best-selling PDO cheese and one of the most loved products in Italy. It has been made with the same passion for almost 1,000 years in the heart of the Po River Valley in Northern Italy using only local milk, and aged from nine to over 20 months. What’s more, 30g of Grana Padano PDO contains the same nutritional value as approximately one pint of milk and it is lactose free due to its long ageing and production process. Real Grana Padano cheese can be recognised by the small diamond lozenges on its rind. So always check there is some rind on the piece you are buying.
