The cheesy take on high tea is back with gooey baked camembert, gouda scones, and chocolate parfait with a side of triple-cream fromage.

Forget hoity-toity high tea and its dry scones and tepid drinks. The Westin and Maker & Monger are bringing back their wildly successful, highly delicious High Cheese, until August.

More than 5000 people attended last year’s extended series to try executive chef Michael Greenlaw and internationally acclaimed cheesemonger Anthony Femia’s collaborative menu of cheesy delights. (The whole baked Normanby camembert wheels and ricotta-filled cannoli were particularly memorable.)

Femia is the man behind Maker & Monger, a beloved Prahran Market stall built around a restored French food cart that sells some of the world’s finest cheeses.

This year, the pair has added black truffle, porcini and walnut layered brie fermier la Tremblaye; Marcel Petite comte custard tarts; and a chocolate parfait with brillat-savarin (a decadent triple-cream cheese) frais and raspberry jam to its list of decadent savoury and sweet dishes.

Match your cheese with a Bellingham Estate pinot gris, Jack Rabbit pinot noir or Kay Brothers Hillside shiraz. Or kick it up a notch with Moet & Chandon Imperial NV.

High Cheese starts from $70 per person and wine pairing starts at $15 per glass. From 5pm daily.
