With too many cheeses to mention on our menu, you may be wondering who it is that is taking care of our inventory and what exactly you can get your hands on at Milk the Cow. Laura Lown is our expert cheesemonger, hailing from the UK directly to our new home in St Kilda, Melbourne.
Here’s what Laura has to say about how she’s gone about putting together the main attraction at Milk the Cow:
“The exciting range of cheeses available at Milk the Cow have been carefully selected to allow you to experience some of the greatest artisan cheeses from around the world.
From the incredibly rich and creamy French Triple creme Delice De Bourgogne, to the harmonious rare white truffled Casio Di Bosco Tatufo Stagionato from Tuscany, you can experiment and discover your own personal favourites, even better, is that you can do so with our finest selected wine for a truly enhancing flavour.
Perfect for summer, and a personal favourite, the Fleur du Maquis from Corsica, also know as “Brin d’Amour,” meaning “a breath of love”, is coated in rosemary, fennel seeds, juniper berries, and the occasional bird’s eye chile, when paired with a sweet Riesling or Bordeaux, it is hard not to fall in love with its herbaceous Mediterranean flavors.
Our 12 month old Comte is matured in a stone fort, Our Black Label Roquefort in a cave… needless to say, whether you like your Strong Spicy Blues, Striking Pungent washed-rinded cheeses, or you just simply prefer a good Cheddar, Milk the Cow offers a wide variety of local and global cheeses, where the choices are unlimited and we encourage you to explore this superb food.”
