And the WINNER is…..

A few days ago I  invited you to enter a very cheesy competition…  To win some cheese!

To my surprise,  I got  only two comments, and one of them was from Raymund in New Zealand who very sadly we both know I can’t send any cheese to (even if I took it myself on the plane it also wouldn’t get in).

So… Hedwig It’s your lucky day!  You are my winner!

I don’t know if Ed has the Beppino Occelli cheese in stock at the moment, but if he has, there is some with your name on it!

Do you like Blue cheeses?  Since you will already be familiar with Oud Dutch Kaas, I will send you some of the other speciality cheeses that you might not be familiar with. I’ll need your address please 🙂 … I’ll email you.


Just a note… the cheeses in the photo here is just the remnants of what’s left over in our cheese drawer before grocery shopping day, it’s NOT the prize LOL.

Question for all of my readers though… don’t any of  you like  the possibility to win some of this  fabulous cheese?  200  people viewed the post but only two  made comments,  seriously: did I do something wrong???

Update:  Himself is back from the cheese shop, I put Beppino Occelli on a list but for the rest, just told him to be adventurous since you said you would probably like everything… and we’ve opted for cheeses that  it’s highly unlikely your local cheese shop would have, so hopefully you will have some big taste surprises in all of these.

I had literally 5 minutes to get these packed before he had to dash off to deliver some urgent work to a client,  get the kids to scouting, run errands for Oma, (it’s one of those Saturday’s…) so sorry Hedwig for the rushed packaging job…  The cheeses you will be getting soonest are called “Ulivo, Cruttin Occelli, Cabrales los Picos, Camembert Calvados and Galet du Mas” …the camera was sitting next to the bed so I grabbed a speedy photo for you… Enjoy!!!!

  1. I’m behind in my reading so missed your initial post…I LOVE cheese! Sorry I missed out but that’s the way it goes. And I don’t know what customs for shipping to the USA would be like anyway…

  2. One of the two hundred was me. I didn’t comment because we’re going on holiday soon and I just didn’t want to miss the parcel and have it sitting at the post office. So from my side, you didn’t do anything wrong. I think the cheese looks delicious and when I’m back and you’re doing any other competitions – I’ll be here!!

  4. Oh no, I wish I had seen your post with the cheese giveaway! Those look really good and I love getting stuff in the mail. I would have def commented had I not been so lazy as to get behind in my readings (haven’t even looked at my own site in weeks). I’ll try to be here next time there is a contest!

  5. You did nothing wrong, Kiwi. The small matter of my actively disliking cheese put me out of that competition, but congrats to the person who won that selection. I’m sure it will be thoroughly savoured.
