Breede River Valley farmer wins Woolworths Cheese Makers Challenge (South Africa)

The inaugural Woolworths Cheese Makers Challenge has been won by dairy farmer, turned cheese maker, Eckard Leicher of La Montanara a small cheesery near Ashton in the Breede River valley, with his Royal Ashton, a Maasdam-type cheese with a sweet, nutty flavour.

The competition, judged by a panel of independent cheese experts, challenged small, local cheese makers to create new and exciting cheeses to tempt the taste buds of South African cheese lovers. Only two entries were permitted per cheesery and entries were received in the categories of hard cheese, semi-hard cheese, wash rind cheese, white mould cheese, blue mould cheese, fresh cheese or cheeses with added foodstuffs.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
