FOR THE LOVE OF CHEESE

Nothing says hello spring like a glorious spread like this paired with a glass of cold white wine. We're ringing in the new Spring season with the understated and simple pleasures of cheese - both soft and hard!

RECIPES WITH SOFT CHEESE

Soft cheeses are one of those amazing ingredients that you can add to elevate your dish. Whether it’s the velvety softness of cream cheese in a dessert like in a basque burnt cheesecake or the freshness of mozarella on a traditional caprese salad, it adds a unique milder taster and a richer and creamier texture than harder cheeses. Most soft cheese varieties aren't ideal for cooking and are more suitable when paired to complement other ingredients. Which of these soft cheeses is the crème de la crème of cheese? We'll leave that up to you to decide! Explore our delicious soft cheese recipes which will be sure to inspire your next meal - sweet or savoury! 

RECIPES WITH GOAT CHEESE

It's a delicious, easy to spread cheese which makes it perfect for simply spreading on a slice of warm toast or a gourmet sandwich, incorporated into a cream cheese dessert, tossed in a salad or combined with pasta to create a creamy and rich dish like our beef ravioli with goats cheese using our 3 piece pasta attachment and KSM160 stand mixer.

HARD CHEESE RECIPES

If you're a cheese lover who appreciates bold flavour and sharpness, then hard cheeses are the perfect addition your savoury dish. From a traditional favourite of cheddar cheese, which makes the perfect ingredient  in any sandwich, to the sharp nuttiness of true authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano swirled in your creamy cacio e pepe. They are crumbly and dry, perfect for crumbling and grating over your favourite dishes! Hard cheeses have a lower moisture content and typically undergo a slow curing process, with aged cheeses maturing beyond 6 months to achieve a fine and sharp taste. We're paying homage to a handful of hard cheeses we all know and love and it’s not hard to see why. Let’s explore the big world of semi to hard cheeses out there!

RECIPES WITH GRUYERE

Dreaming of a classic Swiss fondue or a croque monsieur? Originating from Switzerland, Gruyere is a smooth melting cheese and is considered to be one of the finest Swiss cheeses.

It's made from full fat raw milk and has an aging period of 8-14 months.The flavour profile can vary slightly as the cheese matures, with older cheeses becoming more earthier and complex. It’s a great melting cheese when cooked - the end result is a nice, creamy and a slightly nutty taste! 

Compared to other varieties of Swiss cheese, it has fewer holes and is smoother in texture. When paired with dishes, it adds a rich, slightly salty taste without an overpowering flavour. It’s a great table cheese meaning you can enjoy it in a BLT sandwich or if you're opting for the ultimate definition of comfort food, try this macaroni and cheese gratin, made with the nutty-and rich-flavored Gruyere cheese as a twist on the traditional classic version.
