There are few things better in this life than cheese, I refuse to hear otherwise. I mean sure, going on a trip is amazing, but going on a trip and relaxing with a good cheese board is better. Case and point to me.
So the return of a giant festival entirely dedicated to the stuff returning to Sydney is music to my ears.
MOULD festival first arrived one the Sydney scene in 2019, taking a brief break in 2020 thanks to that total arsehole, Covid. Now she’ll be back to Carriageworks over two days on May 21 to 22 later this year.
The festival is a collab between the group behind Pinot Palooza (the world’s largest pinot noir festival) and Nick Haddow from the Bruny Island Cheese Co. Yes, there will be over 50 different types of cheeses from around Australia to sample, but you’ll also walk away with a deeper knowledge of the process and appreciation for the delicious cheesy goodness that you’re devouring (probably with wine) thanks to masterclasses and more.
Speaking of wine, there will (obviously) be a fully stocked bar so you can have a taste of a wide range of
And, naturally, where there is cheese there is wine, so there will also be a fully stocked bar for tasting a broad range of wines, whiskies, beers, ciders and sakes.
There’ll be full cheesy meals from local providers too, so you don’t just have to rely on samples the whole day.
Tickets are going for the somewhat random price of $48.62, and you can sign up for the waitlist now, right here. Your ticket includes all cheese tastings and a wine glass to keep.
