Cheese is milk’s leap towards immortality.
– Clifton Fadiman
Perth is a wonderful place to live and I find it so special when I am fortunate enough to be introduced to a local business doing some lovely things on the food front. Particularly when the food is cheese. I do enjoy cheese 🙂
Such was the case when Teezy Cheese came a knockin’ on my door one fine Saturday afternoon. A friend of a friend who knew the Teezy Cheese crew asked if I was interested in sampling some of what Teezy Cheese offered. I couldn’t say no! I had expected maybe a few small samples, which I would have been stoked with, but I was slightly overwhelmed when this platter was presented to me.
I mean look at it!! It’s brie in the shape of Australia – talk about impressive! And King Island South Cape Brie at that! And then dotted around the platter were a range of other cheese varieties – a wonderfully bitey and crumbly cheddar, several varieties of blue including an Ash Blue which had an interesting flavour and then there was the brie, which was just so indulgently creamy. It was very helpful having all the little flags to explain what each type was. What a delicious afternoon it was as GG and I worked to put a respectable dent in the expansive platter. Hard to pick a favourite but it was the first time I had tried triple cream blue and I loved it! The perfect balance of decadent creamy goodness along with the salty kick from the blue – winner! There was also some King Island Smoked Cheddar that rocked my world – long time fan of smoked cheeses. And I suspect I ate at least a Queensland sized piece from the Aussie shaped brie 🙂
Amazing – my thanks to Teezy Cheese for the opportunity to indulge in one of my favourite foods! Very spoilt!

Now let me know tell you a little about Teezy Cheese. It’s a family run business – with the name coming from the first letters of the four business owner’s names, with extra E thrown in to round out Teezy 🙂
Teezy Cheese has a stall at Manning Farmer’s Market every Saturday (8.00am til 1.00pm) and on Sundays (8.00am til 1.00pm) you can find them at Kalamunda Farmer’s Market. What the team love most is the social aspect of heading along to the markets and selling cheese to their customers. It’s a nice change from the 9 to 5 jobs during the week, I can definitely appreciate that 🙂 A very diverse range of cheese is stocked, with some of those different varieties that can’t be found in supermarkets. Teezy Cheese aims to try and source Australian made cheeses, but in the interests of maximum variety there are some international cheese on offer as well.
And if you liked the look of the platter above then you can order them. Their platters have been growing in popularity in recent times and they offer different “Themed Platters’, where they endeavour to work with the customer and ensure the platters are presented so they both look and taste very appetising. They are keen to “push the creative limits of cheese to the edge”. Having been presented with brie in the shape of Australia I think they are achieving this goal. Definitely something to keep in mind for a cheese fan in your life…. A pretty platter could be the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, Australia Day, Grand Final Day, Tuesday… tehehe you get the idea. They are great for any special day of the year 🙂
And I know last year when GG and I had our special day, we did toy with the idea of replacing a more traditional wedding cake with a cheese tower. We stuck with mud cake in the end but if you would prefer to go down the cheese route then Teezy Cheese can assist. An artful stack of cheese as your cake would no doubt be quite the talking point!
So if you are in the market for some quality cheeses then keep Teezy Cheeses in mind and be sure and head along to their Kalamunda or Manning Market stalls to say hello one weekend soon 🙂
