Kapiti Kikorangi, meaning sky blue in Maori, is a Kiwi blue cheese produced by Fonterra Foodservices. Invented by Ross MaCallum, Kikorangi is an intense and decadent triple cream cheese with a golden curd and rich network of blue veins distributed evenly throughout. The buttery texture divulges a full-flavoured, savory taste to tantalize the taste buds. As it ages, the flavour continues to build up, intensifying by the day. Kikorangi showcases a perfect balance of acid and sweet as it rounds off a smooth creamy finish amidst a piquant taste.
This creamy cheese has proven itself worthy of many awards including “Champion of Champions” at Cuisine NZ Champions of Cheese Awards.
