MELBOURNE | Are you a cheese-lover? Then you should get down to the Spring Street Cheese Cellar who will be bringing an ever-expanding range of European cheeses to Melbourne.
Located under the Spring Street Grocer, the Spring Street Cheese Cellar has been delivering a wide range of farmhouse and artisan cheese sources from both local and overseas producers since 2013. This underground gem offers Australia’s first underground cheese maturation cellar as well as a basement space which can be booked for cocktail parties and dinners.
If there is one thing that Europeans, and in particular French people, know well, its cheese. Therefore it was no surprise to us when in November 2015 the Spring Street Cheese Cellar kicked off its Bon Voyage campaign promoting European cheeses in Australia. To begin with, Spring Street Cheese Cellar are promoting a variety of French cheeses, which seems to us a very sensible place to start since there are over 1,200 varieties, sourced from local distributors including Calendar Cheese and Kirkfood. The cheeses available cover the full range including washed rind cheeses (the Epoisses on the right was particularly excellent for those who are into strong cheeses)
… soft cheeses like camembert and brie (the so-called ‘king of cheeses)
… and blue cheeses including the Bresse Bleu which is almost a hybrid between a blue cheese and a brie.
While you are buying cheese you should also be sure to avail yourself of the other excellent produce available at the Spring Street Grocer.
If you are a fan of cheese we highly recommend that you get down to the Spring Street Cheese Cellar (even if you have been there before) to check out what will surely be an expanding range of European cheeses available for purchase.
