At the market today, a customer wanted advice about the best way to do cheese after a meal. Keep it simple and don't go mad with accompaniments we reckon. Focus on the cheese - in our hastily put together example - Candy Goddess from the Kaikoura cheese folks; utterly delicious, world beating semi-hard goat. Lyttleton comb honey from our new best local apiarist Paul Maguire and ginger bread biscuits from those clever bakers at Pembroke Patisserie in Wanaka. Maybe a whisky from the very agreeable clan at Whisky Galore, and that's it. ... See MoreSee Less

That Candy Goddess is sooo good!

Loved that Candy Goddess last week

Can I have a Kilo of that aged Gouda please will be at the art centre about 1pm. Thanks. Tom.

Where can I get some of that comb honey please..!

Cheese to savour and a batch we nearly forgot. With a deep orange paste, crunchy texture and a flavour of whisky, burnt toast and caramel, this ancient Karikaas Gouda is a thing to behold. Made 12/12/12 and matured on dusty shelves at the Arts Centre. ... See MoreSee Less
