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.

This afternoon we tried six different wines from across Australia and the New Zealand regions. Starting off with Brown Brothers Moscato (which I think was the students favourite), Hardys Stamp of Australia Savignon Blanc, Toi Toi Marlborough Pinot Gris, Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rose, Hardys Stamp of Australia Shiraz and the Jacobs Creek Merlot. Delicious!!

Oh course there wouldn’t be wine tasting without a cheese platter 🙂
