The Woombye Cheese Pack!
"Award-winning soft mould cheese"
Started by Graeme and Karen Paynter as an escape from corporate life, they have grown and expanded their range as customers all over Australia supported and shared their passion for handmade, artisan cheeses. They have certainly been a local favourite of ours for a while now and all the awards their cheese holds certainly back us up on this! Purchasing a Woombye Cheese pack not only means you'll be getting a box of some of the best cheeses in the country delivered to your door, but you'll also be helping support some of our favourite local cheesemakers, here on the Sunshine Coast.
Who is Woombye Cheese?
At Woombye Cheese Company these guys live and breathe cheese. It’s a bit cheesy to say, but they are as passionate as cheesemakers come! Nested in arguably one of the happiest of corners in the country, the Sunshine Coast hinterland, everything they do has been done with love - you can seriously taste it. Happy farmers, happy cows, happy produce, made with the purest of milk! All their cheese is crafted by hand using traditional methods with care and experience.
What are the cheeses?
This pack includes four multi-award-winning cheeses. So get ready to be blown into the water with these ones!
Ash Brie - Australia's Best
Created using their Triple Cream Brie, Woombye Cheese Ash Brie is carefully rolled in ash. What happens next is it transforms into a striking black and white stunner! The kind that turns heads as it walks down the street (*insert wolf-whistle*) that’s if it could walk. It's more of a roller! Oh yes, we should mention it's also been named Australia's number one brie. That's kind of a big deal.
You know that one friend we all have that’s our ‘big softy’ - well this is the cheese version! Woombye Cheese’s highly awarded camembert is soft and smooth with a white bloom and irresistible centre. You can't help but love him! You might as well tell that friend to change their name to Cam, short for Camembert. Trust us this cheese is far better then our jokes and has some serious awards - recently being named Queensland’s finest Camembert!
Truffle Triple Cream
Woombye Truffle Triple Cream is seriously like taking something you think could never possibly ever get any better and somehow pulling magic out of a hat to make it even better! It's seriously crazy. They've taken the incredible triple cream and infused it with Italian truffle and now magically they have a flagship cheese and rightfully so!
Blackall Gold - Washed Rind
Surprisingly mild while young don't let this golden goddess fool you... because as she ripens, a more robust flavour will set in. When this happens, it only takes a single bite, and just like that, you'll fall under her spell. The flavour of this washed rind is not as strong as her French counterparts, but does develop to a great stench as time goes by. Much of the white mould has made way for the bacteria growth that develops due to her daily brine bath. It's a gold from us!
