Maker & Monger Winter Feast
A one-off three-course cheese feast at the CBD's Arbory Bar.
Winter's coming to a close and we found one way you can end the chilly season on a very toasty high note, involving a lavish, three-course cheese-filled feast. On Wednesday, August 21, star cheesemonger Anthony Femia (Maker & Monger) is teaming up with Arbory Bar & Eatery to deliver a one-off winter dinner that's sure to warm those cockles and fire up those tastebuds.
The menu kicks off with one seriously dreamy entree, featuring no less than three different kinds of cheese, alongside fresh baguette, Meatsmith charcuterie, cornichons and peppers. It's all matched to a pinot noir from Gippsland's Lucinda Estate.
Next up, you'll be digging into a monster cheese fondue, with the likes of roasted parsnip, warm sourdough and veggies for dipping, and the 2014 Domaine Dupasquier Roussette de Savoie altesse for sipping.
Cheese even creeps cleverly into dessert, which will be a modern reworking of the traditional madeleine with gorgonzola, paired with a serve of hot spiced cider.
Tickets to the cheese feast will set you back $115, including three courses and all matching drinks.
