Cheesy Afternoon

Both afternoon and morning classes had the opportunity to try some award winning cheeses from all around Australia.

Cheese #1 – MERSEY VALLEY CHEDDAR

Mersey Valley is Australia’s best loved vintage club cheddar! Mersey Valley vintage club cheddar was created over 35 years ago. Mersey Valley Classic has an extra strong bite, which is balanced with a crumbly melt-in your mouth texture. Mersey Valley Classic is a very versatile cheese that is perfect for a platter, as a snacking cheese or for use in cooking.

Cheese #2 – TRILOGY CLUB CHEDDAR

This trilogy club cheese takes vintage cheddar and pairs it with Mediterranean-inspired ingredients like summery herbs and sundried tomatoes. Just one nibble will have you hooked. The South Cape Trilogy range includes 3 cheeses, each cleverly combined with a selection of unique flavours.

Cheese #3 – JINDI TRIPLE CREAM BRIE

As a dessert cheese, the Jindi Triple Cream is very rich and full flavoured. Its butter-like texture melts in your mouth and the taste lingers for some time. Beneath the white mould bloom lies a glorious golden interior.

Cheese #4 – KING ISLAND BLUE CHEESE

Blue vein cheese is a unique category of mould ripened cheese as it ripens from the interior, as opposed to the exterior (like soft white cheese). Blue vein has a strong tangy flavour, a pungent aroma and a smooth and creamy texture.

Cheese #5 – TASMANIAN HERITAGE CAMAMBERT

Tasmanian Heritage Camembert has a wonderfully satisfying smooth, mild and delicate flavour. Its rind has a dense, even white mould covering, with a slight mushroom aroma, revealing a silky yet firm and pale centre.

An afternoon of fun

This afternoon Lexis Noosa students enjoyed an afternoon of fun in the sun playing volleyball. This activity was so busy we had to make five teams! While two teams versed each other the others sat in the sun and watched as they found out who their next opponent was.

Thanks for coming everyone!

Cambridge Mock Testing

It’s Tuesday morning and Noosa Lexis English Cambridge students have their mid semester mock testing!

Mock 3

 

This is a great way for the students to understand what it will be like to test under Cambridge rules and supervision in preparation for their final exam in November. This is the perfect opportunity for the students to receive feedback from their amazing teachers.

Good luck on your mock exam everyone!

Beer-tastic Afternoon!

What a beautiful way to end the week than with a cold beer! And that’s exactly what the Lexis Noosa students did for their afternoon activity, Beer Tasting.

 

BEER 1: STONE AND WOOD

Stone & Wood from Byron Bay have burst onto the craft beer scene with some fantastic hand crafted beers including this Pacific Ale which is jam packed full of fresh tropical fruit aromas and flavours. The quintesential summer sessional beer, it has crowd pleaser written all over it.

BEER 2: WHITE RABBIT DARK ALE

Brewed out of the old ‘Little Creatures’ Brewery that was carted across the country from Fremantle (WA), this great dark ale has a great intensity with sweet tones. Medium hops with caramel and toffee notes that lingers for considerable time.

BEER 3: JAMES SQUIRE ONE FIFTY LASHES PALE ALE

James Squire One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale is a crisp finishing, Australian style cloudy Pale Ale with malted wheat for refreshing character and a concoction of hops which create fruity aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus. (Brewed in inner-city Sydney)

BEER 4: CRICKERTERS ARMS LAGER

This easy drinking Cricketers Arms lager was specially crafted to honour friendships and celebrate achievements paying homage to a time where telling stories, cheers and post-match banter was an important tradition. Keepers Lager is crafted using sun-dried malt and infused with citrus Amarillo hops. (Brewed in Laverton, Melbourne)

BEER 5: COOPERS EXTRA STOUT

Coopers Extra Stout is a beacon for lovers of a hearty brew. With its robust flavour comprising a blend of fruit, chocolate and hop bitter notes it’s everything a stout should be. Brewed naturally using a top fermentation method, this beer’s unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt. (South Australia)
