MELBOURNE | Prahran Market is hosting its annual Cheese Festival on Saturday October 24, and shoppers expect to be treated to an exciting day of skilful cooking demonstrations, free tastings, cheese themed pop-up eateries, a cheese wheeling race, live music and more.
With many delicious cheese varieties available from the on-site providores, including Calendar Cheese, Red Cow Cheese and King Island Dairy, shoppers will have the opportunity to soak up the vibrant Market atmosphere while matching their favourite cheese with a glass of wine from the Chapel St Cellars Bar.
The Cheesy Pop-Up Market in Market Square will feature a selection of cheese delights, including Milk the Cow’s fondue, Meatmaiden’s legendary lobster Mac n Cheese and A25 Pizzeria’s signature Margherita pizza.
Cheesemonger Anthony Femia will be in the Blanco Kitchen alongside Alice in Frames for a special cheese edition of Edible Adventures, and visitors should make sure they visit the Market’s Deli Hall for special offers and promotions available throughout the day, including the chance to win a ‘cheese’ cake valued at $300 by Naheda’s Choice.
“The annual Prahran Market Cheese Festival is the perfect time to experiment with the taste, smell and texture of different cheeses and their many accompaniments. We have a number of traders all offering something a little different and unusual.” says General Manager Christopher Young.
