Kym Masters has been making cheese at Section 28 in the picturesque Adelaide Hills for just 2 years following a stint learning the craft in the Franche Comte region of France.
Section 28 Monforte is a hard mountain style cheese, named after the village where Kym lived with his family whilst learning to make cheese. It has a rich grassy and buttery flavours, with a firm supple texture. Usually available in store, you will also find it on the menu at Bellota Winebar this weekend.
Monte Diavolo is a truly Australian cheese. This is a cows milk, semi hard cheese studded with crushed native pepper berries - which as the cheese matures, develops a peppery, smoky flavour through the cheese. A seasonal cheese, this will be available in the Autumn - watch this space!
