High Cheese 2019
Swap cucumber sandwiches for gooey camembert this winter.
May 21, 2019
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 once again pairing up to offer a tiered cheese experience this winter.
A more dairy-filled version of a high tea, the High Cheese 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 unlimited cups of coffee and tea. Wine and bubbles also available, but you'll need to pay for that by the glass.
There will still be scones, but they'll be infused with gouda and served with whipped butter — and there will also be a cheesy (and salted white chocolate) tiramisu, cannoli filled with ricotta and gruyère-filled gougères, too. The possible pièce de résistance, however, is an entire baked Normandy camembert served with lavosh 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 (including roquefort served with Four Pillars gin marmalade), but simply too many to list before dinner: we're already hungry. You can satisfy yours from 5.30pm every day between May 24 and August 31.
High Cheese is available from 5.30pm daily. To reserve your spot, head to the website.
UPDATE: AUGUST 8, 2019 — Due to popular cheese demand, the Westin will continue to run High Cheese until the end of the year.
