Our Kāpiti Rarama is a golden washed-rind cheese, soft and creamy with a mild, earthy flavour. It is soft and smooth when young and extremely creamy and aromatic when mature. Rarama means to gleam, glimmer or glow in te reo Māori, and refers to the golden tones on the rind of this decadently creamy cheese.
The earthy flavours of Rarama are a perfect match for the sweet and sour taste of fresh pomegranate seeds or quince paste. Try it for an incredible mouth-watering flavour combination.
