A little bit of regional Victoria can be found in North Carlton at the Milawa Cheese Shop. The knowledgeable staff will talk you through flavours, textures, ripeness and storage of their huge range of cheese. They are all as far away from insipid rubbery Kraft singles as you can imagine so of course none of it is cheap – but my view is that when you don’t even very much cheap, buy a little and the best. My question: the best cheese for a toasted sandwich. Their answer: the Heidi Farm tilsit, a firm cow’s milk cheese which melts but won’t bubble under heat like a cheddar.
HOT: Milawa Cheese Shop, 665 Nicholson Street, Carlton North
