For a weekend which, yet again, is promising rain and cold, here is our choices to go with a book, good company, proper bread, a pot of jam, an oat cake and a wee dram from Whisky Galore. Wildfire from Little River Estate; Leyden from local cheesemakers Karikaas; Windsor Blue from Whiestone Cheese; Ossau Iraty, a sheep from France and raw milk Cheddar, batch 1817, from Mount Eliza Cheese. ...

A lovely batch of @meyercheese goats milk gouda in store and at the market. This is the cheese that was judged Champion of Champions at this years cheese awards and has just picked up another trophy at the prestigious Nantwich International cheese competition. Sweet and caramely with a gentle milky, hazelnuty flavour. ... See MoreSee Less

Old gnarly Cheddar and sweet, spicy Peninsula Blue, both from local cheesemaker Barry's Bay. The cheddar is old fashioned - hard, dry and flakey, with a lovely earthy rind and a mustardy/citrusy flavour. The blue is crumbly and strong; it tastes clean and syrupy and slightly metalic. Both delicious and back on our counter after ages. ... See MoreSee Less

'Les pieds de Dieu' is how the French describe cheeses which are both exquisite and smelly. Often they have been ripened by washing in brevibacterium linens, a microbe which can also be found on the human skin. Today we received some fine examples from @littleriverestate cheesemakers in Moutere. Wildfire is made from A2 cows milk and washed to perfection. ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Nanny from Adrian and Jill Walcroft's marvelous @cartwheelcheese in the Manawatu. They use Saanen milk from a nearby farm in Opiki and it is utterly delicious. Think Roquefort, but less salty and not ewes milk or French......tangy, slightly sweet, nutty, gorgeous. ... See MoreSee Less
