What’s better than gorging yourself on scones, finger sandwiches and Champagne at a regular high tea? Gorging yourself on piles and piles of cheese at the Westin’s un-brie-lievable High Cheese event.
Yes, the insanely successful, sold-out event is back for 2021. The idea for High Cheese began when Westin executive chef Michael Greenlaw teamed up with Anthony Demia from Maker and Monger to bring a series of cheeses together in both sweet and savoury dishes.
High Cheese brings some favourites from last year's menu plus a few new additions to the table. Dig into alpine cheese scones with white wine and Gippsland Jersey butter, baked le Duc Vacherin with garlic, thyme and wine with quinoa, soya and amaranth sourdough, Cervelle de canut finger lime spread with Yarra Valley Dairy fresh curd and Roquefort and cognac dip with beurre bosc pear spiced chutney and housemade crackers.
Usually the Westin's High Cheese is priced at $98 per person and is available every day from 11am until 8pm. That price includes free-flowing coffee, tea and hot chocolate but you can also grab a glass of wine or Champagne which is priced by the glass.
At present, the Westin realises we can't leave our houses, so you can have this experience at home courtesy of Providoor. A new takeaway option is available for $120 and it includes a High Cheese at Home hamper stuffed with sweet and savoury treats. Order yours here.
