Cheese Tour of Southern Tasmania


Posted by Nibbler | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 08-02-2010

Last year I was excited to join Claudia McIntosh from McIntosh and Bowman and several other cheese and food enthusiasts for a tour of Southern Tasmania. We left early on a Friday and spent the weekend touring around Hobart and it’s surrounds enjoying cheese at Grandvewe Cheeses and Bruny Island Cheese

For me the highlights were cheese related of course! I had been dying to meet the cheesemaker at Grandvewe as I love their cheeses. Nick Haddow from Bruny Island Cheese is renown and I was looking forward to tasting his cheeses in their prime. Often the tyranny of distance was not kind to Bruny Island cheeses after their trip up to Sydney.

This weekend in the Sydney Morning Herald, Carli Ratcliff’s article recounting of our trip was published. Even more exciting for me was the use and credit by SMH of my photo of Rodney Dunn from The Agrarian Kitchen.

After bonding over a common passion, we had a fun packed weekend of whisky, cheese and food.
