Mould: A Cheese Festival 2021
Feast on Australia's best cheeses — with wine, beer, whisky and sake, of course.
You can never have too many occasions to eat cheese, but this returning Brisbane cheese festival isn't just keen to shower cheese fiends with creamy goodness. A collaboration between Bruny Island Cheese Co. cheesemaker Nick Haddow and the organisers of Pinot Palooza, Mould wants dairy lovers to explore and devour the mild, hard and soft bites that Australia's best cheese wizards have to offer.
After making its way to Brisbane for the first time in 2019, it's doing so again in 2021, heading by between Friday, March 26–Sunday, March 28. Yep, this time it's a three-day affair, with a bigger venue to go with it: the John Reid Pavilion at Brisbane Showgrounds.
Alongside unlimited tastings of Australia's best cheeses — with the lineup still to be announced— Mould will feature flavoursome fare from cheese specialists too. Think of it as a cheese tasting trip around Australia without leaving Bowen Hills.
Of course, snacking on samples and purchasing slices and slabs to take home with you are just two ways to enjoy cheese. The fest will have cooking demonstrations, masterclasses and talks so you can stretch your cheese knowledge as well as your cheese stomach. And it wouldn't be a cheese festival without beverages to wash it all down with, so expect a bar serving Aussie wines, whisky, beer and sake — all of which match nicely to a bit of cheese.
Tickets cost $45, and there'll be four sessions: 4.30–8.30pm on Friday night, 11am–3pm on Saturday morning (which is sold out), 4–8pm on Saturday afternoon and 11am–3pm on Sunday.
