Danica Voll | 29 August 2019

Okay, it’s officially official. September is now our favourite month of the year. Not just because it’s Spring, but because it’s Formaggio Month which essentially means a month dedicated to cheese!

For 30 days of pure decadence, Cucina Vivo at The Star Gold Coast has created a special dedicated cheese menu that is bound to satisfy every cheese fantasy you’ve ever had (and just remember…. calories don’t count in Formaggio Month).  

The Piatto di Formaggi will see a enjoy a selection of Italian cheeses accompanied with seasonal fruit. You can never go wrong with a cheese board and some wine. For the pasta lovers, it’ll be hard to look past the Maccheroni al Tartufo e Formaggio (aka truffle mac and cheese), which is served at the table in a heckin’ flaming parmesan cheese wheel.

The Burrata features a soft Italian cheese with coal-roasted eggplant, heritage tomato and date gel while the Foccacia Formaggio delivers a crispy thin pizza base topped with parmigiana, mozzarella, gorgonzola and provolone. Just in case you missed it, that’s a 4-cheese pizza people!

With stunning views from the open terrace an authentic Italian dishes, you better brie-lieve this is the cheesiest spot in town.

What: Formaggio Month

About the author


Harbouring an unhealthy addiction of watching too many dog videos, Danica is a lover of the great outdoors. While her greatest skill may be the ability to rap ‘Fergalicious’ perfectly, her inability to remember her left and rights has proven to be her greatest downfall in life. When she’s not on the beach or hiking up another mountain, you can expect to find her trying to satisfy her Tim-Tam addiction with surprise, suprise… another packet of Tim-Tams. It seems like no-one told her they aren’t a suitable daily breakfast.
