Voyage du FromageThis weekend, you’ll only have to journey as far as Tsim Sha Tsui to be immersed in an authentic and eclectic French cheese market, where you’ll have the chance to try and buy more than 200 distinctive varieties. HK’s charming historic hotel property Hullett House will be playing host to Hong Kong’s first Cheese Festival, June 1-5, featuring two of France’s best cheese refiners—French Master Cheese Refiner Philippe Marchand of Maison Marchand, and Master of Cheese and Meilleur Ouvrier de France MOF finalist Dominique Bouchait. Among the cheeses for sale and tasting, will be some from the President’s Tray, which were served during the recent NATO meetings held in France, as well as rare and exceptional newly created cheeses such as Wasabique, a goat cheese flavoured with Japanese wasabi created by Philippe Marchand. In addition to the bustling cheese marketplace, the two Masters will host a series of workshops, tastings and dinners, and will be on hand to impart their wisdom throughout the weekend, so you can feel free to drop by even if you don’t know your comté from your camembert. The festival’s hottest tickets are for two multi-course cheese-inspired tasting dinners on Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5, specially crafted by Michelin-star Chef Philippe Orrico and presented at the hotel’s fine dining institution St George.

Bon voyage, Bon fromage!
