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.

Once in a while we open a NZ cheese which is as good as any (of it's type) in the world. There's Cheddar and Red Leicester from Mount Eliza Cheese; Biddy's marvelous Cheshire-like wonder (Cwmglyn Farm and Middleton Model Railway); Gouda from the Meyer Cheese people in Hamilton; Tenara from Daniel and Sarah, the Kaikoura Cheese folk and today we cut a Devotion cheese from new cheesemakers Thorvald, in Upper Moutere. It's a washed-rind number, made from sheeps milk and looks, for all the world, like Reblochon that benchmark cheese from Haute-Savoie. This is better, ruddy rinded, farmyardy, rich in texture and a flavour from the Gods! ... See MoreSee Less

Back in stock after ages, raw milk Gorwydd (pronounced gor-with) Caerphilly from Trethowans Dairy now based in Somerset. Would be lovely with an oatcake, a pot of jam and a tumbler of whisky, or pot of tea, to celebrate the early onset of another Christchurch winter. Marvelous weather for a trip to the cheese shop and a brisk, fortifying stroll around the Arts Centre and environs - the Museum, Art Gallery, Scorpio Books, Curators Deli, Hagley Park................... ...

Using Lindis pass brie from Whitestone Cheese, Red Leicester from Mount Eliza Cheese, Shropshire Blue from Colston Bassett Dairy, Tania Smoked from Evansdale Cheese and Camembert de Normandie.

Very sad to learn of the death of Veronica Steele of Milleens Cheese. Sarah, me and fellow Neal's Yard cheesemonger William Oglethorpe spent half a week, 20 years ago, learning about this smelly and utterly gorgeous cheese. Veronica and Norman not only shared their home but lent wisdom and understanding (and not just about cheese) to rookie mongers undertaking an Irish road trip. ... See MoreSee Less
