Our chefs have made iconic recipes with our very own Egmont Cheese. Unique smooth cheddar-style cheese with a slightly nutty flavour. Perfect for cooking and baking. Egmont has a delicious cheddar flavour with an excellent melt – the number one choice for your favourite cheesy dishes.
Lamb Shank Ragout, Kumara & Egmont Top Pie
Everybody loves a modern classic and it doesn’t get much more kiwi classic than lamb shank and kumara. These are a great alternative to a pot pie and can be scaled up or down to suit. Using a suet-style pastry with wagyu fat provides an extra perceived decadence for your customers.
Beef Cheek & Egmont Empanadas
Made by hand and eaten by hand, empanadas are a crowd favourite and can be filled with whatever your heart desires, making them super versatile – you could even do an Empanada of the Day.
Egmont Rēwena Bread
Rēwena is a traditional Māori bread. A simple and easy potato sourdough that is super versatile, with a great story and provenance to boot. In my Rēwena bread I love adding cheese for that extra cheesy hit.
Labneh Gnocchi, Kina & Egmont Cacio e Pepe
To make a simple, quick and cost-effective gnocchi I have used labneh. Simply hang your Dewinkel Natural Unsweetened Yoghurt overnight and use this as a substitute for ricotta with a point of difference and a little wow factor.
Mainland Egmont Cheese has a mild cheddar saltiness with a sweet and subtle nuttiness, this flavour carries well making it perfect for baking as a topping or ingredient.
