If you’ve been wishing for more cheese options at a classy setting, look no further.
From the start of June, The Westin Melbourne is bringing back their famous cheesy edition of high tea. This bespoke menu has been carefully designed by executive chef Micheal Greenlaw, and Melbourne’s top cheese connoisseur Anthony Femia of Maker & Monger.
First up on the scrumptious spread is four types of savoury cheese to sample, such as the L'Artisan Grand Fleuri layered brie with sautéed mushrooms and leek, and the baked Le Duc Grand Vacherin with garlic, thyme and wine. For a change of pace, three types of cheese will be served as a sweet option, including the Stracciatella Verrine with Four Pillars Negroni marmalade, pistachio and white chocolate. The choice of scone, a staple of every high tea, is an Alpine cheese scone served with white wine and Gippsland Jersey butter.
If you need something to perfectly complement the array of cheesy goodness served, the distinguished South Australian winery Bird in Hand has provided a variety of matching wines. There will also be a free flow of Vittoria Coffee blends, Jing Tea herbal infusions and hot chocolate throughout.
This much-anticipated High Cheese is served daily from 11am until 8pm starting from Friday 4 June, with reservations being absolutely essential. If you're not able to make it, Providoor, the premium delivery service will bring the cheese cart round to your place.
