High Cheese Is Back In 2020!
From July 2020, The Westin Melbourne will once again be bringing back its popular cheesy take on High Tea.
Partnering with Maker & Monger, Prahran Market’s ‘Chapel of Cheese’, High Cheese serves up three tiers of sweet and savoury treats with cheese as the star ingredient.
Guaranteed to tempt cheese lovers everywhere, the cult classic offering will see you through the colder months and can be enjoyed in the elegant surrounds of the hotel’s Lobby Lounge or for the first time ever, in the comfort of your own home.
Savoury temptations on the menu this year include baked Le Conquerant Camembert studded with thyme, garlic and served with crusty sourdough; Roquefort and cognac dip with poached muscatels and spiced house-made crackers; L’Artisan Grand Fleuri layered brie with Victorian black truffle and crème fraiche, just to name a few.
For something sweet, cheese lovers can enjoy a classic Basque cheesecake, beurre noisette madeleines, and Yarra Valley Dairy curd Fontainebleau with Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz gin and preserved cherries.
High Cheese At Home
For those wanting to re-create the High Cheese experience at home, a new take-away option is available. For $189, you can pick up a High Cheese at Home Hamper for two, including all the sweet and savoury cheesy treats, designed to be placed on a special high tea stand you can self-assemble. Paired with a 1.5 litre sack of Scarlet & Clove Mulled Wine from neighbourhood friends at Bar Clara and a Maker & Monger tote, it’s the perfect at home foodie experience.
There are hampers for two or hampers for one person available and there is even a more traditional High Tea at Home hamper option.
