Etzy Ketzy is a washed rind cheese from Woodside that is made using a blend of 50% goat and 50% Frisian cow milk. It is made only during winter when goat milk supply is less.
The flavour of the cheese is clean, herbaceous with a delicate finish. At 2 weeks of age it is slightly firm, but as the cheese attains full maturity at about 4 weeks, it becomes creamy with intense flavours.
The cheese has won many awards including gold medal at 2006 Sydney Australian Specialty Cheesemakers Competition, 2006 CheeseFest South Australia, 2008 World Cheese Awards, 2010 Sydney Royal Show and many more.
