Bon Fromage, the Festival of European Cheeses is back, and they’re bringing a tonne of cheese with them.
Another cheese festival has graced Sydneysiders once again, and the timing could not get any better. Bon Fromage is bringing back their free 3-day festival, celebrating all things cheese from the 18th to the 20th of October. That’s an entire weekend of cheesy goodness, masterclasses, recipes from all over the world, and the chance to meet and greet some special guests.
Taking place at Carriageworks, experience the taste of Europe as you explore their marketplace of specialty cheese and food stalls. This year’s festival highlight is a mega 60 metre tasting table with over 1 tonne of fromage to enjoy, showcasing more than 20 varieties of cheese from France. Foodies can also sample one-off dishes created exclusively for the festival from popular restaurants such as KOI Dessert Bar, BL Burgers and Loluk Bistro.
That’s not all! If you’re looking to experiment with cheese in your own kitchen, you can also browse and purchase products from some of Sydney’s most popular providers, like The Artisan Cheese Room and Simon Johnson. For those that want to learn new culinary skills, the festival’s masterclasses and live cooking demonstrations will be right up your alley on the main stage. Bon Fromage’s ambassador, world-renowned French Cheese Monger, Francois Robin, will also take the stage and run his own workshop and tastings with guests.
Of course, we all know that cheese tastes better with a glass of wine in hand. Fromage’s wine and gin bar will be open throughout the festival, pouring an extensive menu of rosé, red and white wines, along with gin-based cocktails and local beers.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your friends and secure your tickets here now before they run out.
