Liverpool’s largest food hall located in the Metquarter is home to the city’s first revolving cheese and wine belt and it’s serving some brie-lliant cheeses. The 11,000 square foot space, known as GPO Liverpool, pays homage to the building’s past as the city’s General Post Office, and brings a new wave of independent food and drink traders all under one roof.
Joining GPO Liverpool’s street food traders line-up in September 2021, The Carousel Cheese Co. serves a selection of the finest cheese, charcuterie, and wine across the British Isles. Delicious food is presented on a revolving sushi style conveyer belt to bring a truly unique experience to diners.
Liverpool based North by Sud-ouest provides the charcuterie for the belt, producing traditionally cured meats with a nose to tail ethic. Diners will be able to enjoy exclusively high welfare, free range, slow-grown, local and rare breed meat from this award-winning charcuterie.
To bring out the beautiful flavours of exquisite cheese and charcuterie, garnishes are also provided from the Fermentation Station UK who specialise in local, small-batch, gut-loving garnishes to make the ultimate cheese and wine pairing.
The Carousel Cheese Co. is a love project for owners Patrick Bond and James Kohanzad who have experience working as Richard Branson’s private chefs on Necker Island. Following a difficult couple of years for the farming industry, the space aims to provide British farmers with an avenue to sell their unique and crafted products.
Patrick Bond, co-owner of The Carousel Cheese Co,said: “British cheese farms should be celebrated on a platform that showcases with passion our countries diverse and artisan cheese makers. Now more than ever we need a place to appreciate the finer things in life and what better way than on our unique conveyor belt.”
James Kohanzad, co-owner of The Carousel Cheese Co said: “We are proud to bring our conveyor belt experience to The GPO and showcase the best of British cheese and charcuterie to Liverpool. We are delighted to be working with North by Sud-ouest and the Fermentation Station, two amazing Liverpool producers who make exquisite charcuterie, ferments and pickles which will all feature on our cheese belt.”
The Carousel Cheese Co is part of an incredible line-up of independent food vendors including: Konjo, ALS Gongcha, Chit N Chaat, Mor Mor, Jailbird Nashville Fried Chicken, Patty B’s Burgers and ICE.
The GPO is open Sunday to Thursday 8.30am until 11pm, and 8.30am until midnight on Friday and Saturdays, serving alcohol throughout. You can book a place at the revolving cheese and wine belt here.
