At the annual dinner held last night at the Langham Hotel, Auckland the NZ Cheese Industry is saluted for its originality, quality and versatility. Eighteen awards are awarded for excellence but the one that interests us the most is the winner of the home cheesemaker category.

This year there were four gold medallist finalists – and the judges found it hard to choose. Quality cheese made at home is not something to be dismissed!

We are delighted to announce that the 2014 winner of our joint award is

Curds & Whey Champion Home Crafted Cheese Award

Formaggio di Latte Fresco – Aglio

Curds & Whey Champion Home Crafted Cheesemaker Award

Bri DiMattina

Come and see us at the equally enjoyable Cheesefest held today 5 March in the Ballroom of the Langham Hotel, Symonds Street Auckland from 5-8.30pm. Tickets at the door.

You can taste and try all the extremely yummy cheeses that won their gold medals last night. See you there!
