2015 Cheese Awards
This was the first year yoghurt and butter have been entered to the NZ cheese Awards. I was the aesthetic judge for yoghurt and a wonderful selection was available. The standard was high, particularly the buffalo yoghurt. If you haven’t tried buffalo yoghurt you are really missing a gourmet treat. I also judged the craft section of the awards. More than forty entries in this category show how popular home cheesemaking has become in New Zealand.
I encourage you to enter in March 2016. Go to the NZ Specialist Cheesemakers Association website for entry details.
