Eat, What's On

High Cheese with Maker & Monger

Let cheese ignite your senses this winter as The Westin Melbourne is cosying up with Maker & Monger to deliver High Cheese, an extra cheesy take on the hotel’s popular High Tea.

Launching on Monday 11 June, and running throughout all of winter, High Cheese will offer delectable cheeses hero in both sweet and savoury dishes, showcasing that cheese doesn’t just need to be reserved for after dinner.

Westin Executive Chef, Michael Greenlaw has worked closely with Anthony Femia from Maker & Monger to source the ‘best in show’ of cheeses from across the world to be part of the High Cheese line up.

High Cheese swaps out traditional scones and cream for scones served with creamed Giorgio Cravero Reggiano, the number one Reggiano affineur in the world. Other high tea classics include tiramisu with a cheesy twist and cannoli with a ricotta filling.

For extreme cheese lovers High Cheese will be serving up whole baked Normandy Camembert with mini baguettes you can rip apart and dip into the cheesy goodness, or Basil crème fraiche layered brie with crackers.

Other dishes include Carles Roquefort & Cognac, the very last of the handmade Roquefort in the world, served with Pain d’Épices, Holy Goat Organic Skyla strawberry and thyme Mille-Feuille which is drizzled with honey, and fresh figs stuffed with deliciously sweet Gorgonzola served with natural honeycomb.

High Cheese is $70 per person and available seven days a week from 4pm. Those wanting to match wine with their cheese, there will be varieties available per glass from Ten Minutes by Tractor, Shaw + Smith or port from Penfolds.

Warm up by the fireplaces with mouthwatering cheese and incredible drinks to match at The Westin Melbourne this winter. Bookings can be made by contacting the hotel on 9635 2222 or online at
