Outspoken podcast host Joe Rogan, has expressed his admiration for the city of Perth and even hinted at the possibility of moving there.

Rogan didn’t make it to the West Australian city to watch the high-profile fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Islam Makhachev on Sunday, but he did a live stream of the match from Texas via his popular podcast The Joe Rogan Experience.

During the stream, Rogan complimented Perth and admired the city’s beauty.

“Do you know what Perth looks like? Goddamn, Perth is f…..g beautiful,” Rogan said during the podcast.

He added, “Look how beautiful Perth is…Listen, if the s..t hits the fan in America, let’s all move to Perth.”

And, Perth’s natural beauty isn’t the only drawcard for the city. Back in 2019, Australia’s largest cheese fridge opened in the capital city.

The fridge is located in the European Food Marketplace in Osbourne Park is choc-full of other goodies, as well as the largest (and smelliest) in the country.

European Foods has always been very strong in cheese,” Miguel Buccellato told Broadsheet in a new interview.

Blue Cow (local cheese company)has a well-curated range of products, they are really cutting-edge and have been for 20 years.

“Our vision was to build something similar to what they had created, so when it came up for sale we fast-tracked it. We’re two years ahead of where we’d anticipated, which is really exciting.”

According to Instagram, the fridge has cheeses sourced from the likes of “France, Netherlands, Italy, England, Spain, Australia & more!”

The marketplace has taken a more sophisticated approach to other cities’ euro food ventures, with thousands of imports on sale for customers to try, with some added local flair.

“A large proportion of our product is European or Italian-stylised but locally produced,” said Buccellato.

“The trend is that Australians want to know the provenance story…we want to offer those producers an opportunity to sell to chefs, and for chefs to celebrate Western Australia.”
