Blessed, also, are the cheesemongers and today, I get to chat with one of the best; Olivia Sutton from the wonderful cheese shop, Harper and Blohm in Brunswick, Victoria.
Today’s episode is a real treat as Olivia’s insights into not just how Australian cheese has evolved, in a relatively short period of time, but how we, the cheese lovers, palates have changed as well.
Much like the role of a sommelier in a restaurant, the cheesemonger is there to help you navigate, guide and explore the wonderful world of cheese. Educate, yes, but also empower you in your discoveries.
We’re all on cheese loving journey after all.
Olivia has travelled the world exploring and tasting cheese from across the globe, and has been part of the MOULD CHEESE FESTIVAL from day one as anyone who indulged in her Raclette toasted sandwiches can attest.
Like all she has had to adapt her business in the current climate but her long experience in selling cheese, especially online, goes back years.
Yes, we loudly champion Australian cheesemakers but it would be remise not to acknowledged the time, effort and energy that gets into what Olivia does.
I’m so grateful for her taking the time to chat to us.
