Australian Cheese Showcase 2010: The Rocks Market

The Australian Cheese Showcase 2010 took place today at the Rocks in Sydney. A small number of stalls lined up Argyle Street to showcase a range of cheeses from NSW and other Australian states.

Taking part in Crave Sydney Food Festival (SIFF), the event offered a selection of cheeses for tasting as well as olive oils, balsamic vinegars and regional wines.

Cow-bernet Sauvignon (L) and Holey Cow (R) were a highlight of the event. The award-winning Archibull Cows were designed for the District Exhibition competition at the 2010 Royal Easter Show. Made from papier maché, cardboard and fibreglass as well as natural produce, these colourful cows brought a touch of the country to the harbour foreshores.

Arriving around 1 pm and with four hours to go until the event closed, there was very little cheese on show but exhibitors were keen to offer tastings.

  6. well, shame there weren’t more cheeses, but I like the selection of oils and vinagers – the wasabi one sounds good!

    • The range of oils from Pukara Estate was rather impressive, and the wasabi oil had a nice kick to it!
