Explore Wicked Cheeses
I love cheese. Almost all cheese - yes, even that stuff with the blue mould. So, when driving to Richmond, Tasmania, recently I passed by a building displaying red lips, and the sign Wicked Cheese, I had to stop on my return journey, and am so glad that I did.
They offer free cheese tastings - and I happily accepted the chance to try their products. The great staff were full of information about their cheese. If you are there at the right time (and I suspect it is random), you can watch a television monitor and see the white capped, masked, uniformed cheesemakers at work as they stir, pack, fold, and do all the cheesemaking tasks. You can also watch through the glass window at the activity in the cheesemaking room.
There's great displays of a wide variety of cheeses, as well as a range of products for the kitchen/dining room to help you present the cheeses at their best. There are wines, and a range of other great food products e.g. sauces, pastes and so on.
It is no surprise to learn that Wicked Cheese has won many awards for its products - and that not only do they have an online shop, but in most states of Australia there are shops to purchase direct.
So, if you are visiting the wonderful historic town of Richmond, just out of Hobart, don't forget to visit the Wicked Cheese Company. It's open 7 days a week except Christmas Day and Good Friday, from 10 am to 4.30 pm.
