Monet


Monet is Woodside's most glamorous cheese, I often call it a Chic's Cheese, but surprisingly it's usually the gentleman that go for it - probably because it's so glamorous!

Tasting Notes

We always use our best and freshest Chevre for the Monet. A selection of special herbs season the cheese followed by a selection of edible organic flowers.

Nasturtiums are the base flower and determine the seasonality of the cheese which is usually available early spring to late summer, weather permitting.

Maggie Beer comments "I've just had your Monet for lunch and it was fantastic!"

The cheese is named Monet because the finished product is not unlike photographs of his garden.
