High Cheese at The Westin
The Westin's cheese-themed high tea is back — and it's as gouda as ever.
This winter will see the return of The Westin Melbourne's ever-popular, cheese-themed high tea series. Aptly dubbed High Cheese, this brie-lliant culinary situation is yours to enjoy daily (11am–8pm) in the hotel's Lobby Lounge, from June 4–August 31.
For $98, you'll sit down to an elaborate spread by celebrated cheesemonger Anthony Femia (of Maker & Monger) and Westin Executive Chef Michael Greenlaw. Expect the likes of a baked le Duc Vacherin with specialty sourdough for dipping, alpine cheese scones teamed with Gippsland jersey butter, and the L'Artisan Grand Fleuri brie layered with sautéed mushrooms and leeks in Oloroso sherry. Dessert-style treats include straciatella paired with a Four Pillars negroni marmalade, and walnut praline madeleines filled with whipped comté and fresh honeycomb.
To match, there'll be free-flowing Jing teas, Vittoria coffee and hot chocolates. Plus, there's a curation of vino from South Australian winery Bird in Hand, if you'd like to accompany that cheesy feast with something a little stronger.
Rather not leave the house? This year, High Cheese can also be enjoyed from the comfort of home, in the form of a high tea hamper delivered via Providoor.
