There’s a New Cheese in Town

I’ve often thought that if I worked in food production in any way, making cheese would be the thing for me. That or baking cakes for a teashop where presentation was low on the list of priorities.

I’ve been to cheese festivals, seen umpteen programmes about how cheese is made, eaten I have no idea how many different cheeses, and even wasted a couple of hours messing around and making a song about it (I know…I’m not sure what came over me). However I’ve never actually made any.

I have recipes for soft cheeses kicking around, and keep meaning to try them, but until I do, I’m going to content myself by supporting the industry and eating yet more cheese.

That’s why I was thrilled to come across a new local cheesemaker earlier in the year: Barwheys Dairy.

Hong Kong Food Exploration: Sun Kee

While reading one of my favourite food blogger’s websites for tips on Penang, I came across a long post on a 2010 trip to Hong Kong.

One place mentioned that caught my eye was a café called Sun Kee (Shop 13-14, G/F, Champagne Court, 6-20 Kimberley Rd).

To be strictly honest, it was less the place than a particular dish, namely grilled pork neck and cheese noodles. My love of cheese made my attendance a must, and so one evening we pavement-tangoed our way to Kimberley Road and tracked down Champagne Court.
