Mould: A Cheese Festival 2019
Feast on Australia's best cheeses — with wine, beer and whisky, of course.
You can never have too many occasions to eat cheese, but this new 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 successful outings in Melbourne and Sydney, the festival will make its way to Brisbane for the first time on Sunday, May 19, 2019. Alongside unlimited tastings of Australia's best cheeses — with the lineup still to be announced— it'll feature flavoursome fare from cheese specialists too. Think of it as a cheese tasting trip around Australia without leaving Lightspace.
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.
There will be two sessions: one running from 11am–3pm and the other from 4–8pm. Tickets cost $40 for early bird purchased and $45 afterwards, which includes tastings.
