Third generation cheese maker Matthieu Megard uses local organic milk to make his range of cheeses. Longing for the traditional cheeses of the French Alps where he grew up, Matthieu set out to make cheeses that reflected the local Victorian terroir whilst capturing the essence of some of France’s most loved cheeses. The result is a compact range of handmade organic cheeses; all rich and full of flavour.

The Extravagant is a fascinatingly decadent triple cream cheese with a fluffy white mould and creamy paste. Mild and creamy when young, it develops a soft bite and softening texture at maturity. It reflects the softer side of the local climate and the generosity of the western Victoria pasture. The cream is incredibly delicate and makes this cheese Champagne’s best friend.
