Say Cheese Festival 2019
Prahran Market's day dedicated to cheese in all its forms.
On Sunday, October 20, Prahran Market will host its sixth annual Say Cheese Festival. For the uninitiated (or those who haven't previously attended and devoured all the dairy they can), it's essentially an entire day of eating cheese — and buying even more to eat later.
From 10am–4pm, there'll be free cheese tastings, cheesy dish demonstrations and stalls from cheese providores. Or, you can meet cheesemakers, wander along a market trail or tuck into fondue. If you're not too full from all of that, a hefty lineup of traders will also be offering food to take home or eat there. Yes, there will be many, many cheese plates — and raclette, cheese-filled pastas, cheese toasties, blue cheese mussels, cheese dessert gelato and cheesecake.
Plus, chefs will also take over the kitchen throughout the day to demonstrate cooking techniques — and take part in Melbourne's second Grilled Cheese Invitational to determine who cooks up the best combo of grilled cheese on bread. If you'd like to expand your palate, you can sample your way through guided cheese flights as well, so you'll be downing the gouda stuff with wine, sparkling, chocolate and beer in no time.
