Attention all Melbourne cheese lovers—as it turns out, cheeses does exist. One of Melbourne’s finest shopping and dining hubs is hosting a cheese and wine event you won’t brie-lieve!
With help from the cheese-filled Urban List team, our friends at Northland have enlisted the best Melbourne cheese masters for a one-day only cheese academy as part of their up-coming Cultural Food Academy series. That’s right—this is one class you can pass with grate flying colours.
The Cultural Food Academy is all about celebrating everything great within Melbourne's foodie community; namely, the variety of cultures that contributes to our delicious restaurant scene. Whereas this is the second season of events, the first saw Melbourne food heavyweights Ben Milbourne showcase his Mexican skills, Shane Delia cook up a storm, the Helenic Republic team bring Greek cooking to life, and Miss Chu nail Vietnamese cuisine.
Teaming up with our favourite fromagerie, Northland Shopping Centre will host three intimate cheese classes with help from cheese expert Laura Lown of Milk The Cow. Running on Saturday 22 October, expect cheese pairings with fine wine from De Bortoli Wines and a showcase of dishes that champion our favourite mouldy delicacies.
Guests will indulge in boutique sparkling white, rosé and red wine from the latest mouth-watering De Bortoli vintages as they nibble on (jk—devour) Milk the Cow’s artisan cheese. After all, the best kind of learning is hands-on amirite?
Hosted by self-confessed cheese nerd Laura Lown, guests are encouraged to question how and where cheese is made, along with each cheese’s flavour profile.
Once the cheesy dust has settled at Northland, you’ll be able use all that blue-ming knowledge at home to create the ultimate summer picnic, complete with paired wines. So if you’re a fan of festivity and friends (and who isn’t), there has never been a better time to up your cheese game with warm weather and summer sun just around the corner!
Northland is also promised to be home to a craft beer and chocolate pairing event in early 2017, while Italian pasta and wine lovers can’t miss Northland’s April foodie event.
Knowing Melbourne’s love for cheese, these seats won’t last long! Tickets for the classes are a mere $25, which is a bargain, obviously. Better yet, all of the proceeds are donated to SecondBite, a not-for-profit group who are dedicated providing fresh, nutritious meals to people in need within the community.
