Our Kāpiti Kōwhai Gruyere has a sweet, wine-like aroma. Smooth in texture with a mild nutty flavour the swiss-style cheese creates a mild gas when crafted, causing the small holes to appear in the cheese, often known as eyes. It is named after the beautiful Kōwhai tree that has yellow flowers that are reminiscent of the colour of this gorgeous cheese.
Our Kōwhai Gruyere is a perfect melting cheese and is glorious in cheese fondue, Croque monsieur or a good ol' toastie. It's also delicious on a cheeseboard paired with nuts, fresh or dried fruit and chutneys.
Kōwhai Gruyere + Cheese & Chocolate Toastie
Unconventional is what we do best, and what says it better than a chocolate twist on a cheese toastie.
Serve at room temperature to allow the cheese’s full flavour, aroma and texture to bloom. Remove the cheese from the fridge, place on the platter or board, then cover with a clean damp cloth an hour before serving.
Best Stored at 4 °
