With only one day to go until CheeseFest + Ferment the Festival 2019 starts, we thought we’d let you know some more about the French Quarter, which is making its return this year.
At the French Quarter of CheeseFest you can expect:
- French wine including champagne, notably Pol Roger
- beautiful charcuterie and traditional French meats made by Les Deux Coqs
- A Raw Milk Cheese area – an Australian first! The CheeseFest + Ferment the Festival 2019 will host Australia’s first ever Raw Milk Cheese area.
- Kris Lloyd, who we have to thank for the festival existing, will be curating a special selection of Raw Milk Cheeses available for tasting and purchase at CheeseFest, including her famous raw milk Picasso.
- Australian regulations mean that there is only a very small selection of Raw Milk cheese available in Australia.
- Kris Lloyd feels it is a great way CheeseFest + Ferment the Festival 2019 is the perfect platform to do to have the conversation about this somewhat controversial topic and educate consumers about it.
- French raw cheese that are there will be Beaufort, Comte, and Roquefort.
If you don’t eat and buy your fill of cheeses, charcuterie and traditional French meats while quaffing champagne and French wine, you will find plenty of other products to try at CheeseFest + Ferment the Festival 2019. You can read all about the festival here.
Not French but given our love of all things cheese, it is also noteworthy that Kris Lloyd’s Anthill Cheese, the only green ant cheese in the world will be available at CheeseFest.
CheeseFest + Ferment the Festival 2019 is on this weekend, Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October.
