Texas Mesquite Smoked Cheese product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsWe take real NZ cheese and smoke it with mesquite. This gives it a true smoky flavour with a lovely sweet finish. It is perfect paired with crackers and is delicious in cooking, particularly in mashed potato, potato bake and many other dishes. This is the real deal. Beware of imitations!

Milk, Salt, Cultures, Enzyme (non-animal rennet). Contains Milk.

    •  Keep refrigerated at or below 4°C.

I like a good strong cheese, especially on the sort of "grazing platter" that is often handed round at parties. It makes a great finger food as it is easy to chew and does not drip all over the carpet. I was expecting dinner guests so set out to surprise them with my own platter. I already had some crackers on hand, so I added small tomatoes, aubergine and cashew dip, small whole capsicums, halved olives, and last of all the diced cheese. I considered adding gherkins as well but decided they might be a bit strong and I did not want to overwhelm the cheese.

The smoky flavour cheese comes from the mesquite wood chips which are used to smoke it. Mesquite trees are native to Mexico and the southern states of the US, so foods smoked in this way often feature in the local cuisine of these areas. It is particularly pungent - when I first opened the packet the intense smoky effect hit me immediately. However, once the cheese has been unwrapped, the effect lessens quickly - although, when I tasted it, I registered the flavour straight away. It went particularly well with the aubergine dip as the two flavours complemented each other.

When I was handing around the platter, I did not tell anyone which product we were reviewing - I wanted to get their reactions first. Two of them commented straight away on the cheese, one asking me which cheese I had used, and the other asking me to add some more cheese to the plate as he was enjoying it so much. The third person just said he liked everything, but he is a bottomless teenager who devours everything in his path, so I did not expect a critical response from him. He is too busy looking for his next refuelling opportunity!

When they had finished every item on the platter, I brought out the main meal which included a side of mashed potatoes. I still had a quarter of the cheese pack left so I grated it and suggested that everyone put some on their potatoes. This was also successful; the cheese softened when it came in contact with the hot potato but did not melt into it. The flavours remained separate, so the cheese taste still came through. There was a small amount of cheese still left at the end, but our teenager went back for seconds and demolished the lot. I guess that counts as a thumbs up from him!
