Just like an Italian mama, Grandma Barrett kept a watchful eye on the bread-making and baking in her kitchen. Because her recipes have evolved and matured into the Barrett’s Ridge range you know and love today, we thought it only fitting to add another ingredient that takes time and dedication to reach pure perfection – Italian Cheese.


Ciao Bella Barrett’s Ridge!

The Barrett’s Ridge bread bakers recommend pairing our Italian Cheese bread mix with a Weiss of your choice. The fruity notes of Weiss beer perfectly complement and cut through the deep cheese flavour.

Top your Barrett’s Ridge Italian Cheese beer bread with marmalade. The zesty bite of the marmalade will bring out the flavours of your chosen Weiss, making it a perfect mix of savoury and sweet.


Barrett’s Ridge Italian Cheese mix is also the perfect accompaniment to pea soup.
