Mi­lawa Cheese wins gold at Aus­tralian Food Awards

North East Tourist News - - MILAWA & DISTRICT -

GOLD by name and gold by no­to­ri­ety, Mi­lawa Cheese Com­pany’s ‘King River Gold’ re­cently won Gold in the 2016 Aus­tralian Food Awards ‘Washed Rind’ cat­e­gory.

The cheese, one of the first of its kind pro­duced in Aus­tralia by Mi­lawa Cheese Com­pany, has be­come an iconic prod­uct in Aus­tralia’s artisan cheese in­dus­try.

Mi­lawa Cheese Com­pany’s Cerid­wen Brown de­scribes it as hav­ing the ‘smelly socks’ aroma that many Euro­pean cheeses are cel­e­brated for.

Don’t let the pun­gent aroma scare you away though, the King River Gold is a mul­ti­ple award win­ner for good rea­son.

The taste of this cow’s milk cheese is nutty, slightly smoky and de­li­cious.

The awards didn’t stop there for the lo­cal in­no­va­tors, Steve Rus­sell (head cheesemaker) and his team also took out a sil­ver for their Mi­lawa Brie.

David and An­nie Brown bought the old Mi­lawa Dairy Fac­tory on Fac­tory Road, Mi­lawa and set about pro­duc­ing hand­made artisan cheese and they are mak­ing it the same way today.

Th­ese award win­ning cheeses are avail­able for pur­chase and tast­ings at the Mi­lawa Cheese Cel­lar door and res­tau­rant, seven days a week be­tween 10am and 5pm.

The Mi­lawa Cheese Fac­tory is open from 9am for break­fast, 11:30 for lunch and all day for cheese tast­ings and sales.

It is lo­cated at 17 Fac­tory Road, Mi­lawa and more in­for­ma­tion is avail­able on (03) 57273589 or on their web­site at www.mi­lawacheese.com.au.
