After a successful inaugural 2017, MOULD – A Cheese Festival is back for 2018, returning to Melbourne for the second year running, and heading to Sydney for the first time.
Presented by REVEL (the team behind cult wine event Pinot Palooza) in collaboration with cheesemaker and Milk Made author Nick Haddow of Bruny Island Cheese., MOULD is a celebration of the Australian cheese industry.
The best artisan cheese producers from around the country – including Bruny Island Cheese Co., Yarra Valley Dairy, Shaw River Buffalo Cheese, Grandvewe, Stone & Crow and many more – will come together for tastings, conversations, demonstrations, and masterclasses.
Demand from the cheese-crazed crowds was so high in 2017, that in 2018, MOULD will operate over multiple limited-capacity sessions. In Melbourne, session one will run from 5pm to 9pm on Friday 4th May, and sessions two and three will run from 11am till 4pm and 5pm till 9pm respectively on Saturday 5th May. In Sydney, two sessions – 11am till 4pm and 5pm till 9pm will run on Saturday 1st September.
Alongside tastings of the best Australian cheeses, each festival session will also feature a food program, with the likes of Maker & Monger, Harper & Blohm and Burn City Smokers serving up cheesy dishes for purchase in Melbourne. Sydney’s food program is still to be confirmed.
To wash down all the cheese, drinks will be available to purchase in both cities from the well stocked, highly curated bar. Local wines, whisky, beer, cider and sake will all be available; each one chosen for its cheese-pairing characteristics.
The ticket price includes a glass of wine (and wine glass to keep), as well as all cheese tastings.
