Brisbane Cheese Tastes 09 Preview
I love cheese. The thought of a gooey triple cream brie or a bitey Leicester gets me more excited than Jim Kosek about a cold front.
Whether it’s a blue cheese salad, chicken and goats cheese sausages, cheese cake or just cheese and biscuits, if the dish has cheese in it chances are I’m going to pay attention.
So when Brisbane Cheese Tastes 09 kicks off next month, I feel like the gods have put together an event just for me.
Brisbane Cheese Tastes 09 is a two day event dedicated to finding the best cheeses in Australia and then telling everyone about them through tastings, demonstrations and master classes. It takes place on 13 and 14 June 2009 with people’s day occurring on Sunday (14 June) where for $30 ($25 before 10 June) you will get 6 hours of cheesy goodness.
Entry includes as many free tastings as you can stomach, education sessions about various different types of cheese (with more tastings), lots of opportunities to buy your favourites which in past years have been significantly cheaper than normal retailers and for the serious cheese lover, 90 minute master classes on how to get the most out of cheese in the kitchen (these are extra $ though)
Previously this event has been run as Brisbane’s Big Cheese Bite in a ‘family fun day’ sort of format and it flat out kicked arse. I’m not sure what has prompted the change but as long as they keep the cheese I dare say it will be a great day.
Brisbane Cheese Tastes 2009 will be held at Royal on the Park on Alice St and tickets are available through Ticketek.
