Kaikoura Cheese Tasting

Pataka the Foodstore, 13 Selmes Rd, Blenheim Show map


All Ages

Join us as we host Daniel Jenkins, owner and cheesemaker at Kaikoura Cheese as he showcases some of their award winning cheeses and shares his favourite food-wine matches.

Established in 2011, Kaikoura Cheese emerged from a passion for excellence, top-quality whole food, and wanting to add something of value to the community.

Daniel and Sarah Jenkins moved with their young family to Kaikoura after the Christchurch earthquake with dreams of becoming cheese-making artisans. With no background in farming or cheese-making, they had everything to learn and have certainly achieved a great deal in a short time. They established a small herd of goats and their first commercial goats' cheese “Te Ma”, a fresh French-style soft cheese, was produced. They have won several awards for their products including Champion New Cheese of NZ, 2015 for their “Tenara” ash-coated goat’s cheese.

In what seemed a cruel twist of fate they were caught in the Kaikoura earthquake and are still working to fully recover and expand their business.

Daniel is down to earth, full of enthusiasm and passion for all cheese and will inspire you to expand your matching of cheese with complimentary food and drink.

Soft drinks, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and soup also available.

Tickets $25 includes tasting of 5 cheeses with matched food and wine.
