Taste buds are weird. How I once upon a time routinely declined anything with blue cheese is unfathomable to me - now it can last less than a day in my fridge! We have a whole recipe section dedicated to cheese in our Italian issue of the magazine (out now), and celebrate it in this newsletter with news of the NZ Champion of Cheese Awards 2015 and a Beetroot Risotto made perfect with chunks of Gorgonzola Picante. Online Editor,
Glazed Chocolate and Roasted Nut Cake with Caramelised Plums (gf)
Rich, nutty and totally delicious! Serve with the plums or other roasted stone fruit, a berry coulis or just a glorious dollop of cream.
New Zealand's most awarded artisan cheese maker stayed true to form at this year's NZ Champion of Cheese Awards, with Galactic Gold reigning once more as Category Champion, and newly launched Burgundy Moon receiving early recognition.
