High Cheese

Swap cucumber sandwiches for gooey camembert this winter.

We're going to take a shot in the dark and say that this news will probably be relevant to your interests: the Westin Melbourne and cheesemonger Maker & Monger are pairing up to offer a tiered cheese experience this winter.

A more dairy-fied version of a high tea, the High Cheese will feature both sweet and savoury cheese dishes, created and sourced by the Westin chef Michael Greenlaw and Anthony Femia of Maker & Monger. The whole shebang will set you back $70, which includes all the food as well as as many cups of coffee and tea as you want.

There will still be scones, but they'll be served with creamed Reggiano — and there will also be a cheesy tiramisu, cannoli filled with cream cheese, and matched wines too. The possible pièce de résistance is an entire baked Normandy camembert served with mini baguettes to dip in it (if you don't resort to your fingers, that is).

Many other cheese and cheese-themed dishes are on the menu (for example Carles Roquefort, the last of the handmade Roquefort in the world), but simply too many to list before dinner: we're already hungry. You can satisfy yours from 4–10pm every day between June 11 and August 31.
