Pack some picnic-perfect Bangalow Cheese
All it took was a plate of gourmet cheeses wafting past Justin Telfer when he was working as the manager of the high-roller room at a casino to trigger his ‘cheesemaker epiphany’.
A dedicated foodie with a particular love of cheese, he tracked down a course led by renowned cheese educator Neil Willman at the Melbourne University and was on his way to making his passion a full-time reality. A state border jump later, he was setting up his own business, Bangalow Cheese Co., in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of New South Wales.
A Brisbane boy a heart, stocking his award-winning cheeses at Teneriffe’s Sourced Grocer was a natural step – especially as mum lives just around the corner. His Tintenbar Triple Cream is an indulgent treat perfect for picnics, with deliciously rich buttery and mushroom-like characters.
Or if a dinner party with friends is on the agenda, the St Helena Italo is a hard, loosely Romano-style cheese with a parmesan-like piquantness – great as a table cheese or grated over your favourite Italian homemade dish.
