After spending the last two years celebrating cheese in the Hunter Valley, the Kurrajong Kitchen Cheese Lovers Festival has an extra gift for Sydney dairy fiends in 2018: it's bringing the love to the city. For its third year, the fest will take over Centennial Park for a day of gooey, creamy goodness — and sharp and bitey too, if that's your preference.
This cheesy, cheesy festival will showcase over 50 cheese, wine and craft beer stalls with tasting opportunities, all included in the $25 entry fee. Yes, tasting opportunities. There's an amateur 'fancy cheesecake' competition, cheesemaking classes and workshops with White Rabbit Brewery to help you pair beer and cheese like a pro. And, like last year, there will also be the opportunity to attend a special lunch with a three-course cheesy menu — with Justine Schofield doing the 2018 honours.
Basically, if you can't find a reason to add it to your calendar, you're not looking hard enough. And that's just the official side of things. And if you're vegan and think this isn't for you, this year the fest will host its first vegan cheese stall, so there really is something for everyone.
