Gjetost Hard Cheese
£5.00 Per 200g
A Norweigan delicacy, that’s as sweet as caramel, with a sticky, fudge-like texture.
Gjetost is a concentrated, sweet block that tastes more like butterscotch than like actual cheese.
Made from the whey, rather than the curds.

“One of our most unusual… More commonly found in the lunchbox of a crosscountry skier!” – Harry B.
This cheese has a distinctively sweet caramel flavour with a slightly firm texture. It is the staple cheese of Norway and works well melted or not.
Fudgy texture, caramelly flavour, very different for a mixed milk cheese – there’s a sweetness to it which you wouldn’t expect. And yes we know the colour is a bit odd, but its brownness is due to the milk being boiled! Cool eh?
There is no messing around with this one… Beer all the way.

How to Enjoy
This is best eaten in thin slivers with crusty bread! The Norwegians love it melted on toast or waffles… why not add some chopped bananas for a weird but wonderful breakfast.
