Once again, another year of my life has whizzed straight past me and it is almost time for one of my favourite events – Cheesefest – which will be held next weekend, the 27th and 28th of October, at Rymill Park in Adelaide. This important South Australian annual event is Australia’s biggest cheese festival and provides benchmarks in the promotion, education and development of specialty cheese for the South Australian and the National Cheese industry.
Following on from last years record crowds, this years cheese-lovers will enjoy cheese sampling, cheese cooking, cheese making demonstrations, cheese master classes and some new and exciting cheesey competitions and games. There will be 18 Australian cheese producers represented, with half of these being local South Australian cheese makers and a special selection of our local wines, beers and ciders to wash it all down with. You won’t want to miss the home-made cheesemaking sessions, cheese information sessions with Simon Bryant and cheese and beer info from the McLaren Vale Beer Company so check out the full program here. With the addition of 12 food stalls from the likes of Grace the Establishment, Andre’s Cucina and Polenta Bar and Cocolat I think they’ve got the makings of a local foodie paradise and I can’t wait!
I have two free passes to Cheesefest 2012 for two lucky readers – all you have to do to be in the running to win one of them is to subscribe to my blog using the email subscription form on the right of the page AND leave a comment telling me you have done so and naming your favourite South Australian cheese. It really couldn’t be any easier – maybe I’ll see you next weekend at Rymill Park![mc4wp_form id="16750"]
I’ve just subscribed to your blog via email (I have been a fb follower for quite awhile now).
It is so hard to pick just one favourite cheese made here, but it would have to be Udder Delights goat curd, as it is so versatile (great in an omelette). Running a very close second Heysen Blue (also by Udder Delights). Have to love the Adelaide Hills!!
Cheese fest? It doesnt really get much better than that really! I wish this was on the weekend of EDB3 then I could attend and have a total dairy overload!

What a great give away Amanda!! I know if I lived in Adelaide I’d definitely be going to the festival as I just adore cheese. I hope you’ll share some photos from the event 🙂
I’ve just subscribed to your blog again, Amanda. I thought I’ve done that several times but it still says that I need to subscribe. Anyway, my favorite SA cheese is the Chevre from Woodside Cheese Wright.
If I lived closer I would be there faster than it takes to make cheese on toast !

I received the notice in my email so I think I’m good.
I wish I could attend the cheesefest – I just love cheese and I could easily taste it all day long. I’m off to Canberra next weekend, I’ll let you know how the “brochuring” goes. 🙂
It would be a great event to attend I’m sure. I would love to see all the cheeses – and taste them too of course! xx
Noms. For the Woodside Monet! Very excited to see the range of cheese availiable this weekend.
I have subscribed! Any cheese from limestone coast cheese is delish!
