handmade oatcake or award-winning gingerbread biscuit

October is NZ Cheese Month

And we reckon you can’t eat NZ cheese without a handmade oatcake or award-winning gingerbread biscuit to put it on!

Next time you are shopping, why not shop local and check out your local cheesemonger, farmers’ market or delicatessen and ask them to recommend you a new or interesting New Zealand made cheese to try? We make some really fantastic cheeses in NZ.

With the weather warming up, for easy entertaining this summer, we’ve created some classic hors d’oeuvres recipe ideas using our Oatcakes. They use simple, fresh ingredients and only take a short time to prepare.

The three hors d’oeuvres are Beetroot, Goats Cheese & Honey, Blue Cheese, pear & Walnut and Smoked Salmon & Creme Fraiche on Oatcakes.

We have recipe postcards available at the patisserie for you to take home, but you can also download them right here!

If you are looking for our oatcakes, we supply a few select stores around the country. Moore Wilson’s in Wellington, Raeward Fresh in Queenstown, Florence’s Foodstore and Café & Mediterranean Market in Wanaka.

Keep it light, fresh and simple this NZ cheese month with Pembroke Patisserie.
