In a world obsessed with youth, there are some things that undeniably get better with age. Taste is one of them, and once aquired, a liking for blue cheese can quickly become an obsession.
Kapiti's Kikorangi blue cheese is richly coloured with an even web of dark blue veins that run through a creamy golden curd. Its buttery texture makes it ideal for spreading on oat crackers, and it quickly becomes the star of any cheeseboard.
To get the most of this award-winning cheese, serve at room temperature and slice with a soft cheese knife with holes, to prevent the cheese from sticking. If you find yourself with leftovers (which is unlikely!) store separately from other cheeses in foil to ensure its flavour doesn't taint them.
