Ah yes… I know I said yesterday that yesterday’s post would be my final cheesy post… but I
lied, got thinking, had a better idea, as to why it shouldn’t be.
Just think about it… I’ve been making your mouth water with delectable photos and descriptions of Ed Boele’s specialist cheese shop in the Fahrenheitstraat of The Hague and probably you are now grumbling that “it’s ok for you to have such a wonder in your city but we dont have that where I live“.
Well, Kiwidutch has decided to share.
Readers who leave a comment on this post, about which of the posts in this “cheese series” is their favourite and why, will go into a draw to WIN some delectable cheese posted to you direct from my favourite shop.
There are however a few hurdles to overcome: for starters, I know for sure that I can’t post (even vacuum packed) cheese to New Zealand or Australia due to their exceptionally tight food import regulations.
These are countries that have sniffer dogs in airports searching for not just drugs, but also food.
We are questioned extensively about food in bags whenever we enter New Zealand, even the untouched apple that Little Mr. wanted to “eat later” doesn’t make it past the large disposal bins at the baggage check.
In fact none of the food carried on the plane from Singapore (or anywhere else) makes it past these checks either. So I’m truly sorry my New Zealand and Aussie readers, I already know that if I tried to send you some fabulous Dutch cheese it’s destined for the disposal bins and I’m far too Dutch to post stuff knowing it will be dumped, so please feel free to comment but apologies, you can’t go into the draw.
I have successfully posted Dutch cheese to Canada before, but haven’t yet tried to the USA… elsewhere in Europe, I’m assuming should’t be a problem and am willing to give it a go.
So: whilst I send Himself off on a cheese shopping mission, the rest of you have until 12:00 MIDNIGHT GMT on Thursday 13th October to comment and be in to win!
