Cheese, Anyone?

Recommended Posts

I've just bought some of the New Zealand "Tasty" cheese (red, mature) in my local Tesco super at Doi Saket for 189 baht (reduced from 209 baht).Might be worth checking out at your local Tesco.

 

Regards,

 

Joe

Hope it makes a change from the usual no flavor/taste of the wax stuff they usually sell, labelled as Cheese.

 

Yet to find a decent Cheese. ☹

Not to hijack the tasty red cheese thread... but does anyone know where to buy some tasty buffalo mozzarella cheese?... The round kind usually in water... Rimping has one option option but it not really soft once opened...

Tops for mozzarella in water.  New Zealand's Mainland branded cheese.  Saute 2 tbs French butter in 2 tbs Italian flour till flour smell gone and mix in small cubes of New Zeland Vintage cheese and serve on American sourdough toast.

Hey there Charlie H et al...OK here you are, Enoteca one of the best cheese and wine sellers and Italian restaurants in Chiang Mai. Not far from Meechok Plaza, they have a selection of maybe 30 cheeses or more and wines from circa 500 baht per bottle to 30,000 baht per bottle for the good stuff. They have a lunch time menu for about 200 baht (not including drinks). Well worth a visit. So Charlie H, maybe next time a 🙂

Rimping were doing a two for one on mature Scottish cheddar. Magic as roasted cheese on toast with loads of cracked pepper.

Just bought a package (200 gms net) of Thai made Feta cheese, packed in brine. I like it; no import taxes and only 155 baht. I also need some salt during the day so this satisfies.

Can buy at Makro and Rimping (some).

According to the head chef Buonissimo don't have any connection to Enoteca but they do/did retain a retail outlet next door.

 

Excellent restaurant by the way with enough wine to float a boat.

We made 1/2 kilo of fresh cheese last Sunday.  Made a herbed Garlic/Dill, the texture of a very firm sliceable Feta (rather than crumbly) that was delicious. So much so, we finished it in two days, sliced on Ritz crackers.  Milk and fresh herbs from Rimping, rennet from E-bay,  cheese cloth from YOK.

 

Fresh cheeses are VERY easy to make at home. This one took just about three hours total time, including the waiting between steps, perhaps 30 minutes actual working time. Farmer Cheese, Feta, Mozzarella, herb cheese spreads... all just about as easy to make at home.  Nothing like really fresh Mozzarella in a Caprese salad or melted on a baguette!

Yes, excellent, wonderful, well done you, for being so industrious AND thrifty..but don't you think the 20 baht reduction in the "Tasty" red, mature New Zealand cheese is also worth a small comment?

Try the stuff made by a real professional Swiss/German/Italian cheese maker from highest quality milk --- You won't be disappointed.

Makro remains the best bargain for cheese fanatics in LOS but you have to buy 2 kilos to make it worth your while ( 2 kilos !! , okay then emoji51.png).

I'm enjoying Beston Cheddar from Rimping at 350bht/Kg sold in 200gm packages. It's not at all bad for a mild cheddar.
