Picked up a big chunk of the rarest cheese on the planet for a party we throwing at our house tomorrow night, the Cwmglyn Farmhouse Cheese “Isobel”, a Single-Cow Cheese! Pronounced coom-glin http://www.cwmglyn.co.nz this has to be the best cheese in all New Zealand and right up there in the world stage, having just won a Super Gold Award in the Fine Food World Festival in London–out of 2600 artisan cheeses, making it in to the Top 60 for the trophy tastings–bloody awesome effort! Check out the website www.finefoodworld.co.uk/world-cheese-awards.
