Cheese, Sweet Glorious Cheese: The Say Cheese Festival Returns

MELBOURNE | Cheese, sweet glorious cheese, do you have any idea how long we’ve wanted to run that headline?

For its fourth year running, Prahran Market presents its now-legendary Say Cheese Festival. It’s a day of cheese, wine, and well, more cheese. There’s free tastings, obviously, and if you want to go name checking you’ll find That’s Amore Cheese, Meredith Dairy, Woombye, Prom Country Cheese, Milawa Cheese Co (in conjunction with Pizzini Wines), and the best name ever, Tolpuddle Goat Cheese.

There’s also other food, with the fabled mac and cheese from the good folks at Meatmaiden making its return, along with Margaritas (the pizza, not the drink, but feel free to dream) from A25 Pizzeria, and gorgonzola gnocchi from 48h Pizzeria and Gnoccheria. There’s food from other people too, and it’s packed full of, you guessed it, cheese. Raw Trader will be there too, but we assume they won’t be cheese-based. Oh, and there’s a bar from Chapel St Cellars, also not containing cheese.

And there’s demos from esteemed cheesemongers Anthony Femia from Maker & Monger and Paul Wilson from Wilson & Merchant. You can also couple that with some mozzarella stretching from That’s Amore’s Giorgio Linguanti to make your cheese experience complete.

The Say Cheese Festival runs at Prahran Market for one day only from 10:00am on Saturday the 22nd of October. Entry is free, and the rest of the market will be running too. Check out the official website for more details.
