Say 'cheese'. But better to say it in French. The beautiful sounding word 'fromage' (French for cheese) comes with a raft of culinary heritage and deliciousness. Raclette cheese that melts before your eyes, degustation platters, wine and champagne pairings, perfectly ripe Camembert, Roquefort, Bleu d'Auvergne (a cow milk blue-veined cheese), Bouton de Culotte a soft, bloomy rind goat cheese. Oh, it is all so divine.

Luckily you don't have to travel to France for such experiences. Such delights are coming your way in the Fromage a Trois Cheese Festival on the 24 March held in Werribee.

The festival is in the historic grounds of Werribee Park Mansion. Squint really hard and it could be Versailles as the mansion has an impressive facade, pretty flower beds and perfectly manicured lawns.

Lounge on the lawns and enjoy the roving entertainment, lawn games and live music, including the sounds of Melbourne band, Vaudeville Smash as you feast the afternoon away.

You will also be able to meet the makers behind the delicious, cheesy offerings, sample their wares, and pair those delicious cheeses and artisan food with handcrafted wine, beer, cider or
spirits for a leisurely picnic on the lawns.

There will be master classes and demonstrations on the Chef Stage. You can watch the mozzarella stretching, try some cheese-inspired ice cream or roll up your trousers for a grape stomp competition brought to you by the Pyrenees Wine Region (the one in Western Victoria). The French connection dates back to the 1960s when French brandy producer Rémy Martin established his chateau near Avoca.
