There’s a new Big Cheese in town and families are loving it. Called Tomme de Waterkloof, this creamy newcomer is not only tasty and gentle on the palate. The biggest feature, however, is that this semi-hard, French-inspired cheese is locally handmade by the award-winning Healey’s Cheesery & Deli at the biodynamic Waterkloof Estate near Somerset West.
Tomme cheese typically hails from the French Alps and Switzerland, and is an exciting addition to the award-winning Healey’s range.
“We’re well known as a craft producer of superior, slow matured cheddar cheese, each with defining character and specific adherents,” says Desiree Sass, head of the talented Healey’s cheesemaking team.”Tomme de Waterkloof has broad appeal because of its sweeter profile and creaminess. This crowd-pleaser makes a great snack for the kiddies, too.
Newcomer Tomme de Waterkloof is mild, sweet and creamy with nuances of mushrooms and forest floor with a lingering salty undertone – deliciously moreish.
It is simply delish on its own, but also works a treat when used with other quality ingredients. An easy-melter, it’s so brilliant on a beef, chicken or mushroom burger you’ll be asking yourself: has the perfect burger cheese just been discovered?
It also pairs exceptionally well with wines like the Waterkloof Seriously Cool Chenin Blanc – a sublime match made in culinary heaven.
Good to know is that Healey’s is vegetarian-friendly because only microbial rennet is used and Healey’s Tomme de Waterkloof is certified Halaal.
Healey’s Tomme de Waterkloof is available between R40-R45/150g. Gautengers can get this cheese from Cheese Gourmet in Linden, Johannesburg or if you are in the Western Cape, pop in at Healey’s Cheesery & Deli to tuck into a wedge or two.
The Healey’s Cheesery & Deli is situated on the Sir Lowry’s Pass Road, Somerset West and is open seven days a week from 08h30 to 17h00, Monday to Thursday. 08h30 to 17h30 Fridays and Saturdays. Sundays, it closes at 16h00.
