Kikorangi, a triple-cream blue cheese that's part of Fonterra's Kapiti line of hand-crafted New Zealand cheeses, has been selected as a top cheese of 2011 by Food & Wine Magazine. Associate Editor Kristin Donnelly selected Kikorangi as one of her "5 Favorite Cheeses of 2011," calling it "richly creamy and slightly nutty, with just enough barnyardy blue-cheese funk."
