High Cheese at The Westin — Truffle Takeover Edition
The Westin's cheese-themed high tea is back — with a limited-edition truffle-infused menu.
For the tail end of winter, The Westin Melbourne's ever-popular, cheese-themed high tea series is set to become even more indulgent than usual. The aptly dubbed High Cheese will score a full truffle makeover, serving up an elevated, truffle-infused menu from August 1–31. This brie-lliant culinary situation is yours to enjoy daily (11am–8pm) in the hotel's Lobby Lounge.
The limited-edition truffle lineup clocks in at $140 per person which will see you tuck into 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 shaved truffle on top and 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, and finished with even more black truffle. Dessert-style treats include stracciatella paired with a Four Pillars negroni marmalade, as well as the famed walnut praline madeleines filled with whipped comté, now teamed with extra truffle 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 truffle-laced 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.
