Most of us would drool over the image of a pizza slathered with layers of cheese. Cheese is one of the few ingredients in the world that has such variety, be it in taste or in texture, and lends a magical taste to the dish that it is added to. Here are the shops where you can do your cheese-shopping in Delhi.
For the usual brands such as Amul, Britannia and Mother Dairy check with your local grocery store and you are sure to find them. These are the most-picked cheeses in town. Choose between cheese slices, cubes, cheese spreads, mozzarella and dips.
For the connoisseurs of cheese and fine dining, Delhi has quite a few shops selling cheese from around the world. INA Market near Dilli Haat has several shops, including Gogia’s Departmental Store. Browse through the Camemberts, Cheddars, Gouda, Edam, Feta or Gorgonzola. This shop also has Stilton, Gruyere and Swiss cheese among many others. Find one that appeals most to your tastebuds.
Don’t let the name deceive you, but Allied Fruits and Florists in Khan Market stocks good cheese. A popular choice is Denmark’s Havarti, a semi-soft cheese made of cow’s milk with irregular holes and a washed rind. You could also pick up some sweet Colby, an American cheese, or the spicy and aromatic Limburger from Belgium. Take your pick!
Flanders Dairy, in South Extension and DLF Plaza Gurgaon, stocks a lot of Gouda cheese. They also have Italian Bocconcini (mozzarella) and Scamorza, although you’d need to develop a taste for the latter.
