After the recent closure of The Cheese Barrel, we didn’t have long to wait for a new gourmet cheese venue to make an appearance in the Swan Valley. Officially opened on 27 November, Two Birds Fromagerie is one of the newest spots in the Swan Valley that you need to put on your to do list.
Two Birds Fromagerie
I popped along just before Christmas for a catch up with fellow blogger Amanda to see what they’ve got on offer.
Set on the Great Northern Highway, there’s plenty of parking just off the road, and the restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating options.
There’s also a playground area for the kids just in front of the outdoor seating area.
Inside is a cabinet with their daily cheese selection as well as a range of crackers, dukkah, olives, honey, and coffee, all locally made and sourced, for you to purchase and take home.
It was late morning when we arrived and tempted as I was for a wine flight ($15) with our cheese board, I stuck with something non-alcoholic, an organic lemonade ($4.50) – super refreshing on a hot day.
Their wine list is short and sweet but all local WA vineyards including Riverbank and Flametree – it’s so lovely to see local businesses supporting each other. They also have a Mauritian beer (Phoenix – $8) on the drinks menu and ciders from Core Cider in the Hills.
We decided to share the WA cheese board ($45) and made a few tweaks – Amanda is a glutard (her words!) so we made the crackers and bread gluten free and added some salami ($4.50) and WA small batch honey ($4.00) to the board.
One of the cheeses of the day was a blue one, and with neither of us being lovers of stinky blue cheese, the lovely lady behind the counter (who was actually one of the owners) was happy for us to swap it out for any other kind of cheese.
When our WA cheese board arrived, it looked absolutely divine. We had a Saint Julien from Yallingup Cheese, a Metricup camembert from Yallingup Cheese and an Outback Brie from Dellendale Creamery.
They were all sensational and just melt in the mouth.
Accompanying the cheeses were the gluten free wafers and bread (which did not taste GF at all!), semi-dried raisins, apple slices, olives, a fruit paste plus the salami and honeycomb we added.
They have a small kids selection as well which includes a mini cheese board, a ham and cheese toastie or just a cheese toastie. Kids packs are available too to keep the littlies entertained while you enjoy your cheese board.
