Canterbury Cheesemongers recommends Mount Eliza Cheese.

Cloth-bound magnificence - Blue Monkey from Mount Eliza Cheese. Looks a bit like a science project but tastes and smells a lot like Stilton. Brilliant cheese making by Chris and Jill Whalley in Kati-Kati.

A lovely find on a warm autumn day. Boletus Edulis which would be marvelous on toast with goats cheese or made into a rosotto with parmigiano or tossed into spaghetti with truffled pecorino.
Our shop is open Wednesday and Friday this week (closed for Anzac day on Thursday). And we have our first delivery of proper Raclette and Appenzeller from Kiwi Rachael Sills @kaseswiss - hopefully arriving tomorrow.

With lots of public holidays in the next couple of weeks we have decided to open our new store in Ferrymead on the Wednesdays leading up to the holidays. So this week, we will be open tomorrow and Thursday (10-6pm) and closed Good Friday. Next week, open Wednesday (10-6pm), closed Anzac Thursday and open as normal Friday 10am-6pm. We will be the Farmers and Arts Centre markets as usual. Two wonderful pictures by Dan Young, artist/blogger from the Uk (Hot Cross Bun) and Mike Geno @mikegenostudio - a piece of beautiful cloth-bound Cheddar. Would be a perfect combination! ...

OMG just had one of the Eccles cake....I had forgotten how truly over the top amazingly delicious they are. Had it with some Manchego ..... probably not the best match but I have been in love with the idea of Manchego ever since reading The Power and the Glory.

The bakers at Vic's Vic's Bakehouse, opposite our new shop, have made brilliant bread for longer than we have sold cheese. Graham, the owner, was one of the first people to introduce himself when we started 20 years ago and Martin baked nights with him at his newly opened cafe on Victoria St long before we had our first shop. His breads were properly fermented and delicious, at a time when sourdoughs and crusty flavourful loaves were difficult to find. His current bakers, including Leona @kaleona, continue to make gorgeous bread and we look forward to joining with them to make bread and Eccles cakes for our new place. Pictured is one of Leona's 100% wholemeal/white spelt sourdoughs made this morning and a small batch of Eccles cakes. ... See MoreSee Less

I remember Martin being at Vics cafe all those years ago and talking about opeing his cheese shop. We were customers (albeit intermittent) right from the word go. Christchurch feels more complete to have Canterbury Cheesemongers and Vics Bakehouse working together again.
