Cheese-Tasting with Alje van Deemter

An awarded cheese maker works with Candlewood

Cheese is a very special kind of food. Nowadays many cheeses are produced in factories. But the philosophy of our guesthouse, Candlewood in Knysna, is that we source almost everything from small farmers, winemakers and cheese makers in our area.
We want organic food, homemade in the old-fashioned way. Today we had lunch with Alje van Deemter at his small cheesery at Fynboshoek. It was a fantastic experience to see how he prepares the cheeses we serve for our breakfast.
