Festival Fromage – A celebration of all things cheese

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Complementing the Cow Parade is the inaugural Festival Fromage, a celebration of all things cheese. A celebration of cheese, decadence and deliciousness. There was stinky cheese, gooey cheese and just plain old yummy cheese with some wine? Ooh, yes please!

Located in the historic Perth Town Hall, this ticketed event is a kind of ‘choose your own cheese and wine adventure’. Here at Festival Fromage we could sample and purchase the world’s best cheeses from leading artisans and retailers.

Moving around the stalls at times wasn’t easy with the crowds moving in different directions. We were all sampling the cheese, with a huge range of farmhouse, handcrafted from cow, goat, sheep and ewe milk and/or cream. Each vendor tells us about the cheese as we sample. There are tasting notes for each variety on little take-away cards.

Festival Fromage had cheeses from family farms using age old techniques, soft style cheeses, pungent blue cheeses, Swiss Gruyere, French Roquefort, delicate creamy Brie, tangy light goat’s curd, semi hard cheeses, creamy mild feta and aromatic raclette.

During the event there is a chance to meet and speak with Artisan Producers and try and buy their amazing produce.

And to make the cheese experience a little more decadent and delightful venture to the long table in the Liquor Hall  where you can pair the cheese with award winning wine, beer, cider and spirits using the tasting card.

  3. Looks like a tasty festival. I am actually not a big cheese eater, but I have come to appreciate cheese more as I get older and love a nice cheese selection with good wine to pair it with!

    Mmmm. Cheese and wine. I would have liked to been at this event. My timing for being in Perth was just a bit off.
