Cheese and I go together like Bert and Ernie or Kim K and Kanye; we’re made for each other. So when I was asked if I wanted to attend the launch of Il Fornaio’s cheese and wine night, I’m pretty sure my response came out something along the lines of “well dahh”.
This St Kilda staple, which operated by day as a café and bakery and by night as a bustling pizza joint, has recently welcomed Italian sisters Sabrina and Katia Cappodocio to the family as their very own in-house cheese-makers.
Their addition has resulted in Il Fornaio’s inspired new Mozzarella and Cheese Gallery, which sits snugly, with all its salty goodness, in the restaurant’s dinner offering.
With over 30 cheeses (from $4 for one) to choose from, including a creamy ricotta sprinkled with chilli flakes, a tangy stracchino or the olive scamorza, the range alone will have you salivating for more. And if you’re feeling that type of indulgent go for The Notebook: an array of 12 cheeses ($35), selected especially for you by the Cappodocio sisters.
Matching wines are also available if your tastebuds so desire.
