Aged cheese, blue cheese, cheddar, Danish… we love our cheese so much we can go through the whole alphabet. Any other cheese fanatics out there will know all too well the pull of the creamy, salty, melt-able goodness and will quite possibly be salivating as they read this. If this is you, ready a napkin, because we’re about to take you through the best cheese feasts in all of Perth and trust us, nobody likes an unsolicited drool.
If you’ve never had the French delicacy that is Raclette, consider The Woodpeckers in Subiaco your new cultural tutor. For the uninitiated, Raclette is simply a giant wheel of cheese, heated to perfect gooey consistency and served with various dipping items such as potatoes, bread and pickles. It’s… oh, you’re already out the door.
Toastface Grillahknows the value of a good toastie, so much so they’ve built their business on them. Whether you get a classic cheese and vegemite combo, a slightly more sinful three cheese melt (no B Vitamins there) or something fancier you’re guaranteed gooey melty goodness encased in crispy carbs.
Imagine if you could make cheese. At home in your kitchen. From scratch. Well dear friends, this dream can become a reality with the help of one of the many courses on offer at The Cheese Maker. Become the hero of haloumi, the master of mozzarella, the God of goat cheese and everyone’s favourite dinner party guest.
If you worship cheese, head to The Cheese Cathedral in Osborne Park where one of Australia’s largest specialty cheese fridges displays an impressive selection. Behind soaring glass windows, some of the wheels reach a massive 35kg. Enjoy a tasting or take a masterclass on how to assemble the perfect cheeseboard.
In Subiaco, Perth’s trendiest lifestyle precinct, the Fromagerie at Simon Johnson also has an impressive selection, with more than 100 cheeses available for tasting. Buy a Langres soft cheese from France’s Champagne region or Cashel Blue from Ireland and bring it back to your digs at the Vibe Hotel Subiaco Perth.
The Vibe’s rooftop bar and restaurant, Storehouse Subiaco, always features a West Australian cheese of the day. A highlight of the menu is La Delizia Stracciatella, shredded curds of mozzarella in cream, which Storehouse serves with pickled strawberry and burnt onion. Made by an artisan local cheesemaker using beautiful South West milk, no words can do justice to how delizia it is.
