Blog 6: Say cheese

How many types of cheese do you have in your fridge?

Last week there was proper Italian Mozzarella in the fridge. And I mean snow white balls of gooey goodness. Needless to say, that didn’t last long so now we just have regular old yellow Galaxy Mozzarella as well as 2 for $7 Waimata Camembert, Whitestone Probiotic Camembert and a few chunks of an amazingly smelly blue cheese that starts with K but I can’t remember the name. 

Unfortunately I’d forgotten about a block of feta that had been sitting in a plastic container at the back of the fridge. At least, I think it was feta. Looks like a huge, rectangular cotton ball now. 

Cheese is expensive in NZ, and it’s also not the best for health so I try to limit my intake but there are so many good ones. Haloumi is great pan-fried and in salads, Parmesan on pasta, Mascarpone in Tiramisu, then you have Swiss, Gruyere, Brie, Gouda, Roquefort, Ricotta, Provolone, Gorgonzola….oh my….the possibilities are endless!

    Solange, I am pleased to see that you appreciate the hard work done by your friend the retail cheese buyer in getting those multi buy Camemberts and Brie’s to you at an amazing 2 for $7 not to mention the KKKK Kikorangi or Kahurangi from Kapiti and the Probiotics from the the Berry’s at Whitestone. Just a great pity that the Feta met its fate in a shroud of mould. Not unlike wine, cheese is a living culture in many ways.

    Ooooh yes, I think it was Kahurangi! Soooo good 🙂 Michelle, I very much do appreciate every little thing that is done to make cheese more accessible to me. And I promise I will be more careful of what’s lurking at the back of the fridge from now on. No cheese deserves to meet such a fate!
