Cheese at The Stinking Bishops, Newtown
So over the weekend the boy and I went to Holey Moley for a round of putt putt (where I completely kicked his ass) and we found ourselves outside The Stinking Bishops, ogling the cheese displayed in the fridge. Surprisingly for someone who’s this cheese obsessed I can’t believe it’s taken me 3 whole years to visit! But hey let’s not dwell.

Chicken Liver Pate at The Stinking Bishops, Newtown
We start with the Organic chicken liver pate ($20). It is perfect- rich, creamy, ridiculously smooth and the spoonfuls of apple puree and tumble of ginger and tamarind jelly helps to brighten the palette.

‘French Onion’ Mac ’n’ Cheese at The Stinking Bishops, Newtown
The French onion mac & cheese ($26) is one giant mountain of insanity.

LOOK AT IT! My gut is twisting just looking at this haha the creamy mac & cheese is buried under a pile of caramelised onions, scamorza (Italian cow’s milk cheese) and gruyere. It is incredibly cheesy and is every lactose intolerant persons simultaneous dream and nightmare.

Mushroom 'Mr Crispy' at The Stinking Bishops, Newtown
There’s a Smoked Wagyu ‘Mr Crispy’ sandwich ($13) on the menu but we choose the Mushroom ‘Mr Crispy’ sandwich ($11).

The sammich is stuffed with juicy field and enoki mushrooms, melty taleggio cheese and a generous schmear of garlic and thyme mayo. The side salad was a welcome addition to cut through the richness of the toastie, especially the florets of pickled cauliflower!

And of course we had to get some cheese! 3 cheeses will set you back $29 and comes with muscatels, a slice of fig and walnut, quince paste and a bowl full of bread, lavosh and crackers. We get a buttery Brie Fermier, the creamy Domaine de Bresse mild blue and the unctuously ripe Epoisses de Bourgogne, in all its gooey, oozy glory.
