“A proper cheesy experience”

We stock proper cheese, carefully made and matured, from New Zealand and abroad. They have natural rinds and long lingering flavours. We cut everything to order, wrap in paper and recommend consuming sooner rather than later. All the cheeses have spent time aging in our storerooms, some are ready almost as soon as we get them, others might be with us for up to two years. We began selling cheese from the back of a French Simca van at the Christchurch Arts Centre and Riccarton markets in 2000. It started as a part time venture, and we stored and matured cheese in a large shipping container parked in our back garden. In 2002 we opened our first shop and bakery on Salisbury St. This was demolished following the September 2010 earthquake and we re-opened, four months later, in premises located in the Arts Centre, central Christchurch. We learned all about cheese while working at Neal’s Yard Dairyin London. They were established in Covent Garden in 1979, and began by making yoghurt and soft cheeses. The Cheesemongers were set up by Sarah and Martin Aspinwall and since opening there have been lots of talented cheesemongers and bakers working behind the counter. Come and visit us for the best cheese experience you’ll ever have in Christchurch.
