The ultimate cheese board from Melbourne’s Milk the Cow fromagerie

For those among us who would order the cheese platter for dinner, rather than as the afterthought – this is a place to commit to memory. Welcome to Milk the Cow, where all your cheese and wine dreams come to life by the sea in St. Kilda or in the city in Carlton. Park yourself at one of their carved wood table and admire the endless amounts of cheese from near and far in their four metre glass cabinet.

One hundred and eighty different cheese from all around the world come together for your epicurean pleasure, handpicked by Milk the Cow’s expert team of cheesemongers. The rarest flavours from around the globe sit nestled alongside local selections, and an ever-changing weekly selection of what is ripe, seasonal, and new determines what goes on a cheese flight board: a custom-designed flight with paired wines, beer, sake, gin, whiskey, or cider and fresh baked bread. Match your brie to your sake and let a one of the knowledgable staff talk you through each pairing as you savour the combinations. And when a celebration calls, one of their famous cheese towers is non-negotiable.

Can’t get enough? Visit for one of their events such as foodie trivia or an expert-led tasting. And don’t be surprised when you keep coming back for more. You have to milk the cow twice a day, after all.
