High Cheese Pops Up at the Westin Melbourne With Maker & Monger

June 2, 2018 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

Let cheese ignite your senses this winter as The Westin Melbourne is cosying up with Prahran’s Maker & Monger to deliver High Cheese, an extra cheesy take on the hotel’s popular High Tea.

Launching on Monday 11 June, and running throughout all of winter, High Cheese will offer delectable cheeses heroed in both sweet and savoury dishes, showcasing that cheese doesn’t just need to be reserved for after dinner.

Westin Executive Chef, Michael Greenlaw has worked closely with Anthony Femia from Maker & Monger to source the ‘best in show’ of cheeses from across the world to be part of the High Cheese line up.

High Cheese swaps out traditional scones and cream for scones served with creamed Giorgio Cravero Reggiano, the number one Reggiano affineur in the world. Other high tea classics include tiramisu with a cheesy twist and cannoli with a ricotta filling.

For extreme cheese lovers High Cheese will be serving up whole baked Normandy Camembert with mini baguettes you can rip apart and dip into the cheesy goodness, or Basil crème fraiche layered brie with crackers.

Other dishes include Carles Roquefort & Cognac, the very last of the handmade Roquefort in the world, served with Pain d’Épices, Holy Goat Organic Skyla strawberry and thyme Mille-Feuille which is drizzled with honey, and fresh figs stuffed with deliciously sweet Gorgonzola served with natural honeycomb.

High Cheese is $70 per person and available seven days a week from 4pm. Those wanting to match wine with their cheese, there will be varieties available per glass from Ten Minutes by Tractor, Shaw + Smith or port from Penfolds.

“We’re excited to be collaborating with Maker & Monger on High Cheese, bringing cheese to the forefront, and offering guests something different and warming this winter, said Westin Executive Chef, Michael Greenlaw.

“We look forward to providing each and every patron of The Westin Melbourne with an incredible sensory experience via the High Cheese offering and hope to educate about these amazing cheeses at the same time,” said Maker & Monger Owner, Anthony Femia.

Warm up by the fireplaces with mouthwatering cheese and incredible drinks to match at The Westin Melbourne this winter.

High Cheese will be served daily from 11 June until 31 August. Bookings can be made by contacting the hotel on 9635 2222 or online at

“We have picked the best of the best for High Cheese with every cheese bringing a deliciousness that’s dynamite in your mouth,” added Anthony.
