Driving through the beautiful countryside

My husband took me on a surprise date yesterday and his theme was "Cheese Please". Our cheese date began on a day like any other. If you're based on the Sunshine Coast like I am, or more specifically Nambour, you can try the same route we did, what we dubbed "The Cheese Circuit". Heading west via Mapleton, our first stop was Kenilworth Country Foods.


From strong cheddar cheeses, to rich and smooth chocolate mousse, at Kenilworth Country Foods there is something to please everyone's palate. Most of their products are homemade, the cheeses are handcrafted and the best part is you can taste a bit of everything for free. We ended up taking home some Vintage Cheese called "Top Dog Old Bitey" and had a couple of scoops of their homemade gelato. While the store front and outdoor dining area looks a little run down, the friendly people and delicious food selection (at great prices and good value for money) make up for it.

It's cheese galore at Kenilworth

Our next stop, south of Kenilworth was Maleny Cheese Factory. This place has a vision that is a little more developed. Their products' packaging is under full branding and allows Maleny Cheese to be recognised on a national scale. Their café and shop that first greets you has a modern façade but is still homely and welcoming. At Maleny Cheese, you can also have a free tasting of a few of their cheeses on offer, not as many choices as Kenilworth's free tasting buffet offers, but still some great cheese to sample. The factory as offers tours including an introduction to their cheese making processes.


Finally, we headed back North-East through Montville, Mapleton and back home to Nambour. Our mini-Cheese country drive-by was a lot of fun, and filling too! If you're a cheese lover like I am, I'm sure you'll enjoy an afternoon in the country doing "The Cheese Circuit".
