We’re not very adventurous with cheese, so when we got a box from D’Artisan Handmade Cheese, we had to ask the founder Dexter for his recommendations on what to pair each type of cheese with. 

The monthly cheese box from D’Artisan Handmade Cheese

We just took the easy way out, getting crackers and jam (or nomming straight on the string cheese like a snack), but Dexter tells us his customers often use the cheese for cooking and baking.

Dexter himself adores cheese, and his personal favourite is blue cheese. “The more stronger the flavour, the better it is! Just love it,” he said. Even if you’re not a fan, he’s found that his Gorzila (Gorgonzola, Italian Blue cheese) has managed to change a few hearts and minds.

Petai fans, listen up: Dexter’s even managed to create a Jering infused cheese too, which he calls “Harta”. Jering is actually a more pungent relative of petai, so let Dexter know if you’d like to try it out.

Dexter’s been making his own cheese from scratch at home (he told us he’s already produced 61 varieties!) and the MCO was the push that got this business started.

If you’d like to support this local cheesemaker, you can order individual cheese from his website (there’s a large selection there!). Or go on an adventure with the Cheese-of-the-Month club, which comes with a specially curated selection of 5-6 cheeses, starting from RM200/box.
