Huguenot Cheese Wears the 2013 Crown

Huguenot Cheese
The six month matured Huguenot cheese from Dalewood Fromage, a cheesery in
the heart of the Cape Winelands, was last night (24 April) crowned as the
2013 Dairy Product of the Year, having trounced some 800 products entered by
69 artisan and commercial producers. Twelve exceptional dairy products that
earned the most coveted Qualité mark of excellence joined this winning
cheese on the podium during the DuPont Qualité Awards Dinner of the SA Dairy
Championships. An additional 95 products were lauded as SA Champions.

Cheese, chorizo and olive tapas

Queso tetilla or nipple cheese!
Forgive me, for I have not posted in 3 weeks. And I have so many things to tell you about. I shall not say (yet again) where has the time gone to, but I really really want to. So I am just going to get straight into continuing on about Tapas. We made quite a religion of it on our travels, sitting ourselves down and making pre-dinner food. Today I am going to show you some of our cheese, chorizo (paprika salami) and olive tapas.

Blue Cheesecake

Savory blue cheesecake
A whole month and a half without a chirp from me. How lucky can you get!? I had every intention of making this year far less hectic than the last 43, but alas it is not to be. This puppy dog is still chasing her tail with no end in sight. My TEFL English course has finally reached its long awaited end (I am now a bona fide English teacher!!) so I should have more time next month...but then the students arrive to be taught English. Sigh. Poor me.
