Special – Glühwein Reciepe

We can’t think of a better way to warm you up on the weekend than, Gluhwein!

For those who do not know what Gluhwein is, it is a mulled wine traditionally served on the Austrian ski slopes. Best of all it is served hot!

Our Gluhwein is made in house using red wine, oranges, lemon, sugar, cloves, cinnamon sticks, aniseed stars, whole nutmeg and cardamom pods. Cook it all together in a pot and there you have it!

Come down and have a glass of Gluhwein and some cheese to warm you up this winter.

 

 

Special – Mothers Day

Thanks to all the Mum’s who came down on Mothers Day for our special, hope you were all spoilt rotten!

Review – StKilda News

Thanks Food Dude from StKilda News! We love StKilda.

“Seemingly daunting to novices of wine and cheese, this establishment and their staff make every effort to overcome this stereotype. From extremely affordable flights which consist of four different cheeses paired exquisitely with four beverages (wines, beers or spirits) that range between $16 to $20, to the Cheesemonger’s Choice Cheeseboards ($19 to $30), to featured cheeses that come with descriptions, Milk the Cow’s menu is as informative as the staff are.

Enchanting light fixtures, fashioned from milking equipment, illuminate a rather large glass display case that plays host to an astonishing variety of cheeses. Table settings fitted with white stools are placed in front of it so patrons can partake in conversation or simply face forward and admire the cheese if they so wish. So whether you’re a seasoned wine and cheese lover or if you’re a first time adventurist, Milk the Cow will assuredly be a pleasant experience for one and all.”

 

Perfect Match Monday – May

Thank you to everyone who came down to join us for Perfect Match Monday May!

Our French themed tastings were a big hit! Thank you to Sam Hooper from Cellarhand and Iain Cameron from Vintage and Vine for supply the wines.

A special thank you to Marijke Ferdinands from Calender Cheese for discussing the cheese. Marijke has recently been awarded with the ‘Garde Juror International Guilde du Fromage’, a prestigious French cheese industry award. A big congratulations to Marijke on the award and she absolutely blew everyone away with her knowledge of cheese and the International cheese industry.

Review – bestrestaurants.com

Thanks bestresaurants.com, dairy farm was absolutely the look we went for because we love all things dairy!

“Like stepping into an industrialised dairy farm, Milk The Cow on Fitzroy Street is one part fromagerie and one part bar. There are an abundance of natural design elements including sleek wooden tables, an aggregate bar and a faux grass wall that gives that casual, outdoorsy feel. Representing the cool factor in this pretty tableau, there are chandeliers made from milking equipment, stainless steel bar racks and hipster staff donning check shirts.

Getting a seat in this cosy space can be a squeeze, so perch in front of the bar to take in all the action (and maybe a little sample) or enjoy the company of others at the large communal table for 12 in the back. ”
