Absolutely nothing compares to the indulgence of unwrapping an assortment of cheeses and just going to town. Whether you prefer a universally enjoyed cheddar or a ludicrously decadent double-cream brie, everyone can appreciate a good cheese. So, we’ve rounded up a selection of fromageries, delis and shops for your next cheesey experience. Check them out!
The Cheese Cathedral
90 Frobisher St, Osborne Park
Located inside The Marketplace by European Foods is Australia’s—that’s right, the entire continent’s—largest specialty cheese fridge. Soaring 3.1m high, the glass windows of the Cheese Cathedral display cheese of all varieties, with some wheels reaching a massive 35kg.
For the fromage fans looking to develop their palette (or maybe just get some free samples) the Cheese Cathedral offers masterclasses on everything from making the perfect cheeseboard to impressing guests at your next dinner party with the perfect raclette. So, fellow cheese worshippers, get ready to sing the praises of dairy at your next visit to the Cheese Cathedral.
The Cheese Shop
2/47 Railway Road, Kalamunda
Tucked away in the Perth hills is The Cheese Shop, a family business owned and operated by fellow Perth cheese lovers. The Cheese Shop began as a stall at various farmers markets before settling in Kalamunda, just up the road from the Kalamunda Hotel—after all, the perfect accompaniment to any cheese is a good bevvie.
After tasting the variety offered by The Cheese Shop you can bundle up your favourites and take them home to enjoy, or you can pick up one of the hand-prepared cheese boards! Try a cheese you really like? You can add it to one of the take-home boards as well, or consult with one of the cheesemongers to curate a totally unique cheese selection to take home or enjoy in-store!
1071 Wildwood Rd, Yallingup Siding
Fancy a drive? Then make sure you visit Yallingup Cheese, an artisan cheese company that is the jewel in the southwest’s dairy crown. Head cheese maker and proprietor Alana Langworthy studied her craft in France, hand-rolling giant wheels of Comte with a cheesemaking family before returning to Perth with a newfound passion.
Originally a winemaker, Alana is the expert you want for perfect cheese and wine pairings. And with Yallingup Cheese’s space also home to Goon Tycoon Wines , you can take in the gorgeous southwest scenery and unwind with some southwest produce that you’ll be thinking about long after you return to the metropolitan area.
Little Sister Delicatessen
25 Market St, Fremantle
Proving that the youngest child always has more fun, Little Sister Delicatessen is stealing the spotlight from her big Kakulas Sister Grocer with some indulgent fare. Your one stop shop for everything you need to make your best charcuterie board ever, Little Sister proudly boasts one of the most impressive cheese ranges in WA.
All that cheese hunting got you hungry? I don’t blame you. Pick up one of the delicious handmade rolls or toasties while you’re wandering the aisles or indulge your sweet tooth and grab one of the pastries and an espresso—the possibilities are endless!
Sweet dreams are made of cheese, and who are we to disagree? So next time you’ve got a dinner party, gathering, celebration, or even just if your housemates have left for the weekend and you’ve finally got the house to yourself, set up a delectable cheeseboard curated for you by the best Perth has to offer.
