Caseus was established in Sydney in 2012 by cheesemongers, Aurore Ghigo and Tom Ippolito. With a combined experience of nearly two decades, we aim to offer the best in artisanal, farmhouse cheeses and accompaniments from Australia and abroad.
Our philosophy is simple, to provide education and enjoyment to our customers through our passionate service. We have an intimate and hands-on knowledge of local producers, plus an expansive background knowledge of traditional cheese from the homelands in Europe. From raw, rare and organic cheeses to ancient, new and quirky creations, we have a cheese for all pleasures and budget. Cheese is a creation that takes in all the senses, as cheesemongers we encourage our customers to taste, smell and feel before they buy as getting the correct choice is a personal decision.
From our first market stall at Frenchs Forest Organic Market in Sydney in early 2012, we have now grown to 5 weekly market stalls. In the pursuit of our cheese education in the following years , we’ve gained experience at one of Australia’s prime Bio-dynamic dairy farms, Marrook Farm, in the NSW Manning Valley, to moving to Melbourne at Australia’s oldest Cheeseroom. While keeping our markets stalls in Sydney, our retail store in the heart of Brunswick, Melbourne reflected our journeys and our love of cheese and good food.
