New Zealand's Favourite Cheese Title Won By Puhoi Valley Cheese

The secret is out! The cheese we love the most is Puhoi Camembert.

Awarded New Zealand's Favourite at the 2002 Cheese Awards, Puhoi Camembert has been judged our most popular cheese.

Corrie den Haring, Puhoi Valley Cheese General Manager says the win is very satisfying. He says; "Consumers are our most important judges at the end of the day and we always make cheese with the hope that New Zealander's will enjoy it. This award reflects the great success that our Camembert has had locally and we hope will continue to have for years to come."

Puhoi Camembert is a fresh, soft cheese with a mild, even flavour, a smooth creamy texture and a subtle mushroom flavour.

In addition to winning New Zealand's Favourite, Puhoi Valley Cheese was awarded a total of 14 medals, with Gold medals for Ornelle Camembert, Puhoi Camembert and Puhoi Goat Feta as well as a host of Silver and Bronze medals.

The New Zealand Cheese Awards were created in 1994 and aim to raise the profile of New Zealand cheese in New Zealand and overseas, providing a well-recognised mark of excellence. This year over 400 cheese entries were received.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
