The Cheese Book

According to ancient records passed down through the centuries, the making of cheese dates back more than 4,000 years. No one really knows who made the first cheese, but what we do know is that cheese is one of life’s great food pleasures.

As cheese making flourished in Europe and became an established food, so the more than 400 varieties of cheese now produced around the world offer us an interesting, delightful and expansive selection of cheese varieties.

At Bluerock, we are proud to offer a wide range of quality cheese from both New Zealand and around the world. Their characters, flavours and uniqueness created by difference in milk source (both area and animal), fermentation and ripening conditions, as well as size and shape, with many still produced in the communities where they originated; Gouda and Edam from the Netherlands, Cheddar from England, Emmentaler and Gruyère from Switzerland, Parmesan from Italy, and Feta from Greece and Bulgaria to name a few.
