The big cheese

go! Platteland - - NEWS AND EVENTS -

The Huguenot cheese from Dale­wood Fro­mage, a nutty Gruyère ma­tured for six months, was de­clared dairy prod­uct of the year at the 2016 South African Dairy Cham­pion­ships. Then Ce­leste Scholtz, the model on the cover of our pre­vi­ous edi­tion, in­formed us that it’s also avail­able in a smaller truckle size (an av­er­age of 1,2kg each) that you can turn into feather-light cheese petals – just as you would a Swiss tête de moine cheese (a so-called monk’s head). You use a cheese scraper, which the French call a girolle and the Dutch a kaaskruller. Such a neat party trick! • The Dale­wood cheese shop on the R45 in the Cape Winelands (the Klap­muts-Si­mondium Road) sells cheese, cheese knives and ac­ces­sories, and is open Mon­days to Fri­days from 09:00 to 16:00. The shop also does busi­ness from Septem­ber to June be­tween 10:00 and 15:00.
