Any cheese lovers here? Recently I participated in Mainland cheese tasting session, this finest 100% natural cheese is versatile for cooking and pairing with other food, it is especially wonderful to be enjoyed on its own due to its fresh and exquisite flavours. Coming from the land of endless pastures and abundant sunshine, New Zealand’s top cheese brand Mainland has brought its naturally-aged fine cheese to Malaysia!

Food-loving Malaysians are increasingly sophisticated in selecting good cheese as ingredients for cooking, from Western favourites like pizza, burger, pasta to Asian adventures like the Korean budae jjigae, Hong Kong style cheese-baked rice, cheese naan, and banana cheese fritters.

For more than 50 years, Mainland believes that “good things take time”. The company takes no shortcut in the careful and slow aging of its fine cheese in the year-around cool and temperate climate of New Zealand. It honours timeless craftmanship in producing the finest 100% natural cheese; that’s why they still craft cheese the way it has been doing for over 65 years with traditions proudly handed down from generation to generation.

I tasted and enjoyed a variety of Mainland cheese, including Vintage, Tasty, Colby, Gouda, and Edam – they are good on its own, paired with other food, or in cooking.  Each has its own taste and character.

Mainland Vintage Cheese

🧀 Vintage is a premium cheddar aged up to 24 months, thus delivering a sharp, rich savoury flavour with a strong bite. Its sweet, smoky flavour works best with burgers, cheese dips, pasta, beef or chicken meat jerky, bak kwa, or just on its own for a bold burst of dairy goodness on the tongue.

🧀 Tasty is a cheddar aged up to 18 months to create a full-bodied flavour with lingering fruitiness. The trusted favourite pairs well with the savoury notes of chicken floss (serunding) and crispy dried seaweed.

Mainland Colby Cheese

🧀 Colby is moist and sweet, a strong contender for being best mates with Asian cuisines. It goes wonderfully with kimchi, spicy vegetable pickles and spiced nuts.

🧀 Gouda, which is a Dutch-style semi-soft cheese with a nutty note is a flavourful companion to toasted Sichuan spice, traditional chilli, and mushroom salads.

Mainland Edam Cheese

🧀 Edam is high in protein, with reduced fat, and is ideal for vegetarians. It is sweet, buttery and nutty, which lends complex savoury notes to sweet and sour Asian dishes or sauces.

Cheese-making, an ancient practice, involves culturing milk with specific bacteria strains. Mainland is one of the last big cheese companies to make and supply its own culture, which is crucial in developing the complex flavour of its cheese. This means that Mainland produces richer cheese with greater consistency by making it the way it was made 100 years ago – through a natural process.

“Just say ‘New Zealand’ and its lush landscape immediately comes to mind for many people. Indeed, it is a country bathed in sunshine, with clean air and an ideal climate for growth and abundance. New Zealand is also one of the few places where cows graze on sweet grass pastures all year, which gives them the best from nature to produce high quality milk,” says Debbie Van-Niekerk, cheese expert from Fonterra New Zealand.

She explains that grass-fed cows are key to the high-quality cheese that Mainland is known for. She also recommends more Malaysians to try serving plain cheese on a platter with some fruits, snacks, or beverage as a luxurious and fuss-free appetizer. To do this, the cheese should be brought to room temperature for the best tastes. “Cleansing our palate in between bites with drinks and tasting the cheese in order of flavour intensity will make the experience even better!”
