Adventures in Cheesmaking

This all started out as a curiosity. Like most stuff we eat there is a rich history behind it. Centuries of experimentation. Cheese is just another example.

From the horse back tribes of the Asian Steppes to the Silk Road camel caravans to Romans Legions to European Monks to today, milk was a great source of nutrition but spoiled quickly and was heavy to transport.

The answer was cheese.

Caerphilly leaves the cave

This turned out to be a great cheese.

Just on 4 weeks ageing . A bit crumbly, but firm and easy to eat, just as it should be for this cheese, perhaps a bit like a Colby. Great flavor. A hard rind but with no strong flavor and perfect to eat. I liked the combination of creamy taste with solid but not overwhelming.

A great cheese to have with an ale or will even stand up to a larger.
