Karikaas Cheese, the cheese for cheese lovers made in Rangiora, North Canterbury The Karikaas range includes a selection of Dutch style cheeses made in a traditional manner and sold in a range of age categories from young to vintage.
Vegetarian Cumin is a low fat and vegetarian option for those who enjoy Leyden/Cumin Cheese. If you like the fresh taste of cumin in a young cheese, without the cholesterol issues, this is the cheese for you. A full flavoured and aromatic young cheese.
Karikaas Gouda Vintage is a firm highly complex flavoured cheese with some sweetness and a lingering taste in the mouth. A little goes a long way. May have some crystalisation – a sure sign of age. A beautiful cheese on its own, but perfect shaved to add the final touch to a dish of pasta, or a Caesar salad.
A traditional Dutch cheese, Gouda has a creamy texture and mild flavour when young, with the vintage Gouda developing intense & complex flavours with a firm texture. Vintage Cumin is tended in our cheese store for over a year. As time passes it develops superb flavours and aromas.
