Maleny Cheese celebrates Official Opening and First Birthday
There will be lots to smile about in the Caloundra hinterland when Maleny Cheese celebrates its official opening and first birthday on Sunday, April 10.

A new wash-rind cheese will be launched along with a program of entertainment and the chance to see local celebrity chef Craig Mitchell show how Maleny cheese can be a secret ingredient for mouth-watering recipes.

Make a weekend of it and unwind at one of the nearby bed and breakfast facilities set amongst the rolling green hills of the Blackall Range. Take part in the lucky draw for a free weekend and pamper package at Bendles Cottages and Villas.

Maleny Cheese Director, Heather Simpson, said a range of award-winning cheeses and yoghurt would be available to taste and take home. The Cheese Stop is the onsite, licensed café and will be open all day.

"We want to celebrate our first year and share the fine tastes and products that the Maleny hinterland is renowned for. We have planed a great day's entertainment, and hope to give every visitor a special experience" Ms Simpson said.

The purpose built European-style cheesery offers visitors the chance to see first hand how Master Cheese Maker, Markus Bucher produces the range.

Mr Bucher has developed the new wash rind cheese that will be unveiled as part of the official opening at 11am.

At 1 pm Craig Mitchell from the multi-award winning Terrace Seafood Restaurant will showcase his culinary skills.

Local products from the Maleny Innovative Farmer's Group will be on show, along with information on local bed and breakfast facilities in the area.

There will also be the chance to win a Weekend Escape at Bendles Cottages and Villas including a Maleny Pamper pack of products.

Maleny Cheese is open seven days a week 9am to 5pm at 1 Clifford Street, not far from Tree Frog Gallery and Maleny Touchwood, and across the road from Bendles Cottages.  All products are made with natural ingredients.
