Nationwide Celebration of New Zealand Cheese

Cheesemakers & Retailers Set for Nationwide Celebration of New Zealand Cheese

New Zealand’s top specialist cheesemakers, major supermarkets and cheese retailers, are gearing up for the inaugural New Zealand Cheese Month next month.

Driven by the New Zealand Specialist Cheese Association (NZSCA), Cheese Month (October 1-31) will be marked nationwide through in-store cheese specials and promotions, ‘meet the cheesemaker’ events, farm open days, tastings and more.
NZSCA Secretary, Dianne Kenderdine, who recently attended the 2013 American Cheese Society (ACS) Competition and Conference as an invited guest, says New Zealand cheese is right up there with the best in the world, and should be celebrated.

“What sets New Zealand apart is the taste of our milk products, thanks to our grass-fed animals who have space to roam. This gives our cheese a full-flavoured, natural quality,” Kenderdine says. “New Zealand Cheese Month is about eating and enjoying Kiwi-made cheese, and taking advantage of the fantastic events, activities and promotions happening throughout the country.”

Foodtown, New World and PAK'nSAVE are all running Cheese Month specials on selected New Zealand cheese brands throughout October.
Meyer Gouda Cheese, Whitestone Cheese, Crescent Dairy Goats, Over the Moon Dairy, Waiheke Island Cheese Company are just some of the New Zealand cheese brands running regional and national events and activities to celebrate Cheese Month.

Regional eateries, restaurants and specialist food stores, are also supporting New Zealand Cheese Month, with all activities and events listed by region (and updated regularly) on the Cheese Lovers website.
Throughout the month of October cheese lovers are encouraged to share what they love about, and how they eat, their favourite New Zealand cheese via Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag; #ilovenzcheese

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
