Best Before; Minimum 6 weeks 

Gjetost was first made in the Gudbrandsdalen valley in Norway more than 130 years ago. Anne Hov, a farmer’s wife, was the first person to think of pouring cream into the kettle of whey. Her brown cheese got a higher price than her ordinary cheese and butter, and is reputed to have saved the valley from financial ruin in the 1880s.Gjetost is best served in wafer thin slices and eaten on toast or Norwegian flatbread (very thin crackers). It is also makes an unusual addition, and talking point when added to a cheese board. 

There are two types of Gjetost available in the UK: Ski Queen Gjetost (red packs) made from goat and cows’ milk and whey; and Ekte (pronounced ‘Ekta’) Gjetost which is made only from goats’ milk and whey. Here at The Cheese and Wine Shop, we stock the Ski Queen type, which is a little bit sweeter than the Ekte, with a slightly smoother texture.

Not quite what i ordered3 stars out of 53 stars out of 53 stars out of 53 stars out of 53 stars out of 5
I ordered 2 x 250g blocks of cheese. Speed of delivery was excellent and product was good quality. However, I received 1 500g block. While this is the same quantity, I was unable to give the 2 blocks to 2 different people as I had planned!

Pure luxury from Norway. After seeing the cheese on the hairy bikers I really wanted to try it. Was a real treat and first class service really impressed and look forward to a trip to your shop in the near future.

cheese was excellent and exactly what i wanted however the astronomical cost of delivery (more than twice the price of the cheese!) will prevent me from purchasing again.

Have had the best of attention from this supplier with lots of communication. They have been very helpful. I did point out that I felt the postage and packing was quite expensive for such a small amount of cheese. Came very quickly and was extremely well packed. Thank you!
