Had Mutodi Neshehe been a cheese, he would have been well matured, super tasty, exotic and expensive.

Oh, and he'd go really well with a good red wine.

Seriously, a little known fact about this talented producer, actor and model is that he is also a fantastic chef. His signature dishes are home-made lasagne and fillet with cheese.

"I use only the best Mozzarella and Cheddar to make my favourite meals," he says. "And only the well-matured, non-processed kind."

We ask him to lower his high standards a little to tell us which is the best sliced sandwich spread Cheddar on the shelves.

He opens the bright blue Parmalat packet first.

"This is not good quality cheese. It's processed and I can definitely taste the difference. It's tasty but kind of synthetic."

Melrose cheese is next and Neshehe munches away at it on a Provita.

"Though it also tastes processed it has a better, stronger cheese flavour," he says.

Neshehe has a low opinion of Dairybelle.

"This is not good cheese," he says. "It sticks to the mouth and tastes like plasticine."

About Clover's l sliced Cheddar he says: "Now this one is very tasty."

But as far as Neshehe is concerned Woolworths' sliced Cheddar takes the prize.

"The texture and taste are far superior," he reckons.
