Nick Haddow to headline CLF 2017


After growing up in Adelaide in a house where everything was cooked from scratch, Nick took on the world of hospitality by studying hotel management and working in Adelaide’s best restaurants where he found his passion for good food, wine and especially cheese. Mentored by two of Australia’s foremost cheese experts; Will Studd and Richard Thomas, Nick spent time working at Milawa Cheese Co. and Meredith Dairy in Victoria in the early 90’s before being awarded a Queen’s Trust Grant to work with cheesemakers in Europe, learning traditional cheesemaking and maturation techniques.


Nick Haddow aka ‘The Big Cheese’ is widely regarded as one of the best cheesemakers in Australia. He is passionate about fostering artisan food and preserving traditions by understanding how it is made. His products are a reflection of his dedication to tradition and quality.
