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!
