GRAM Magazine: Wine & Cheese – The Perfect Pair

Our Head Cheesemonger Laura Lown divulges her secrets to perfectly matched wine and cheese. Thanks to Megan Osborne and GRAM Magazine for a great feature!

“Laura Lown, Cheesemonger from Milk the Cow, helped us out with her extensive collection and even wider knowledge base around the dairy delights. Impressing us with an array of cheeses from Spain, France, the Netherlands, USA and, closer to home, the Yarra Valley, we couldn’t have been more impressed by her pairings.

Milk the Cow first opened its doors in St Kilda in 2012 as a fromagerie with a cellar door experience, and by popular demand, a second store in Carlton appeared in 2014. The selection is huge, with tastes ranging from sweet to salty to extremely pungent and blue veins abundant (epic). The experience at Milk the Cow is even greater due to the cheese flights on offer, with boards matched with beverages ranging from wine, beer, cider, whisky, fortifieds, and even saké.”

The Urban List: The Best Places To Nurse Your New Years Day Hang Over

“After hours of beers, shots and cocktails, Milk the Cow’s cheese tastes even better. We conducted an appropriate amount of research in preparation for this article, of course. Milk the Cow expertly pairs cheese with matched drinks, but since we figure you covered that particular base last night, go for a decadently stringy individual fondue pot or a cheeseboard for a luxe hangover reward”

The Urban List: Where to Drink Mulled Wine in Melbourne

“Wine and cheese go together like, well, wine and cheese, but sometimes even such a classic pairing needs a bit of spicing up. The cheese-obsessed folk at Milk the Cow in Carlton and St Kilda are well aware of this and, as such, are presenting ‘Fondue Evenings – a Night in the Alps,’ featuring Glühwein (German-style mulled wine), a guided tasting of European cheeses, and fondue. It’s like wine and cheese, but hot. And spicy. And melty. And gooey. But it’s only on for a few nights during winter, so book in now before we nab all the spots ourselves.”
