“A meal without some cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye.”
Jean Anthelme

Cheese is more than just an appetizer or ingredient in a meal. It’s a wonder of nature. Who would have thought to work cow, sheep or goat’s milk into such a distinct and delicious shape, colour, taste and smell.

We can thank dairy artisans, monks, farmers and peasants over the centuries who toiled at creating the best tasting fromage all over the world. The cool thing is, cheese has more than just a culinary history. There’s love, war, politics and money wrapped up into all its gooeyness.
