Tucked away on Bardon’s shopping strip, a shop called Woodblock Cheese recently opened, churning good cheese that mixes the flavours of Australia and Europe.
The little artisan shop is owned by Margie Parsons, who is passionate about all things cheese. It all started with a local cheese making course a few years ago. From then, she started to learn more about cheeses. Ms Parsons studied at the Artisan Cheesemaking Academy in South Australia and packed up on the knowledge. Today, she is now a qualified cheesemaker.
She offers a wide variety of cheeses from Australia cheeses to European ones that you can’t find elsewhere in Brisbane but here.
Check out their semi-hard and washed rind cheeses. There are also haloumi, buffalo mozzarella, and gorgonzola piccante.
This is also THE shop to find quite a selection of hard-to-find sheep’s and goat’s cheese.
Woodblock is the perfect place to hit if you are throwing a wine and cheese party and want to have a varied and sophisticated cheese board for your guests. Aside from cheese, they also offer pates, fruit pastes, prosciutto, pancetta, and many more.
If you want to get to know more about cheese, they also offer a small selection of cheese books and cookbooks in the store.
