Charcuterie and 'Bark'uterie
We are long time fans of a good charcuterie board but it didn't seem fair that our favourite furry friends were missing out... so, we've rounded up our favourite Australian pet snack brands shipping nationwide so you can construct a pup-friendly 'bark'uterie board! These brands are baking up healthy dog snacks — ideal for plating up a snack board for your pup! (Don't be mistaken though, some of these dog snacks look good enough for a human to eat!) Of course we haven't forgotten our pup-parents, we've gathered some of our favourite local Melbourne specialty cheese shops and grocers so both you and your pup can graze all weekend!
For the two legged kind...
Maker and Monger
For the cheese connoisseurs, Maker and Monger is the place to be! (Or at least the place to order your charcuterie deliveries from for now.) This South Yarra specialty cheese shop is home to some of the most beautiful local and international cheeses — not to mention their kitchen's seasonal menu of gourmet cheese toasties and flavourful dishes made with fresh produce from the nearby Prahran Market.
