Canterbury Cheesemongers added an event.

October is NZ Cheese Month, so to celebrate, Oxford Farmers Market is inviting home cheese makers to bring their cheeses to a tasting and informal judging by all the tasters. It is only open to amateur (as in non-commercial) cheese makers.

Martin Aspinwall, Canterbury Cheesemonger, will give a talk on the day about tasting cheeses. If you would like to be a taster/judge, we ask a gold coin donation, for which you will receive voting papers. Limited to first 50 to purchase judging papers.

Prizes: 3 x Best cheeses will each win $50
$5 voucher for each cheese maker entered
All judges will go in the draw for $30 Market Vouchers
Canterbury Cheesemongers has donated $150 in vouchers which will also be awarded on the day

Please share this event with anyone you know who makes homemade cheese, goat, cow, sheep, yak, you name it, if you can milk it, you can make cheese from it!

Amateur Cheesemakers should contact Andrea Gauland to find out more information andreagauland@gmail.com

Canterbury Cheesemongers added 2 new photos.

Two cheddars, "both alike in dignity" one from Wales, one from Katikati, just cut and on our counter this morning. They are both made from unpasteurised milk, they are both cloth bound and they were both made slowly and then matured for a long time. They taste nothing like the cheddar you find vac-packed or waxed in supermarket fridges, cheddar that gives proper cheddar a bad name. Hafod and Mount Eliza are as proper as proper can be; long flavoured, interesting with a smell of earth and hay, and a taste of mustard, figs and almonds.

Our new smelly, melty cheese is Ogleshield inspired by this guy - William Oglethorpe, the brains, brawn and gentle heart behind Kappercasein Dairy (kappacasein.com/). We worked with William at Neal's Yard Dairy and he went on to open the cheese toasty and raclette stall at London's Borough Market using this cheese to melt on top of a plate of potatoes. It is actually made by Jamie Montgomery, of raw milk Cheddar fame, at Manor Farm in North Cadbury, Somerset. William struck on the idea of brine washing his Jersey milk cheese (Jersey Shield) and transforming it into this golden, semi-soft and farmyardy masterpiece. Like Raclette it melts beautifully and is extra rich becuse of the glorious milk. Wonderful!! ... See MoreSee Less

Just a reminder that we are open as usual today and tomorrow then closed for our annual (one week) mid-year break........ And the current cold, sleety weather is a perfect occasion to stock up on a heap of the body warming, soul nourishing, smelly goodness which is cheese. Cheese to melt, cheese in soup, cheese on potatoes, cheese in a sandwich, cheese to snack-on with an oat cake and jam, cheese for breakfast, cheese on toast with a glass of whisky before bed! The most wonderful cheese in the shop today is Cwmglyn (pictured) made by Biddy Fraser-Davies (Cwmglyn Farm and Middleton Model Railway), that marvelous lady in Eketahuna who has battled, against the odds, to produce a raw milk cheese that is truly magnificent. Cheshire-like with a minerally, buttery, lemony flavour, and a crumbly, old fashioned texture. This is real cheese made with care and utter dedication.
BTW we re-open Tuesday 25th July.
