Perfect Pairings – Top Cheese and Wine Choices

Top Cheese and Wine Pairings

Our sommelier and cheesemonger have worked with us to create a cheese and beverage menu that compliments each other without being restrictive. We believe you should eat and drink what you like not what someone tells you to. That being said a guide is always a great starting point and you’ll find excellent recommended matches throughout our menu.

Why Butter is Best

Creamy, decadent butter, crusty bread – it’s one of the best combinations and we’re serving it up just for you.

Who doesn’t love butter? Our obsession with all it’s fatty deliciousness and several conversations with fellow butter fiends who admitted (often with a sheepish guilt) to eating it on its own, led us to create a simple treat. The Thornbury Fromagerie Butter Plate will have you tasting a selection of local and imported butters served with fresh crusty bread. That’s it and it is seriously delicious. 

Featured Butters

Some of our local butters include Fitzroy locals St David’s Dairy who source fresh cream from Victorian farms and use small scale, quality processing to create their Cultured Butter.  The cream is allowed to ferment for 24 hours with beautiful European cultures, once the cream begins to crystallise, it is churned slowly in a small batch butter churn.

Sydney super star Pepe Saya creates arguably Australia’s best butter. Loved by top restaurants and chosen by Qantas to serve on their international flights this cultured butter has a slightly sour taste and stronger aroma than your standard supermarket fare but is a must try.
