Love cheese? Taste and learn how to make some here
Cheese is just another one of my favourite foods - cheese is possibly the most versatile food ever! You can eat it on its own, with crackers or in a sandwich, in a cake, in many sweet and savoury dishes. I always have a supply of various cheeses in my freezer as I used it a lot in cooking. Here are a few examples of using cheese in cooking: spinach roulade and blueberry and cottage cheese on raisin toast.
In Perth, there are not too many cheese events, however, I have listed some of them so you can decide which ones you would like to attend.
WA cheese week is actually held from 27th May to 2nd June 2019 and you can read about participants at this link.
