It’s Not Easy Being Green Cheese – Wasabi Cheese

Let’s be honest, cheese and Japanese food aren’t the most obvious bedfellows.

But horseradish and cheese are a actually match made in heaven, so why not wasabi and cheese?

I spied this cheese in the dairy section of my local Lulu Hypermarket already sliced (it was the last of the lot apparently).

Not the prettiest cheese to photograph, being green and sliced and all.

Not actually from Japan, this wasabi cheese hails from Holland. Made by Basiron it claims to be extra strong, but is actually kinda mild. I like my wasabi to blow my head off and cure the sinus allergy caused by our regular dust storms. This gouda was actually quite mild. It had the sharpness of an aged Gouda and a kick from the wasabi, but still pretty mild.

Japanese flavor. Dutch ingenuity. Consumed in Qatar.
