Episode Info

Episode Info:

I knew from my cheese research that cheese making originated in the fertile crescent, however, I didn’t know that a sample of cheese from ancient time has been found preserved in a tomb.  Not edible of course, but they did find something interesting!

Cheese news

World’s oldest cheese found in Egyptian tomb

This week’s Listener questions are from the following curd nerds;
  • John would like to know if there is such a thing as a pigs milk cheese,
  • Elisha wanted to know if you can mature cheese at room temperature
  • Rod is curious about early civilisation cheeses
  • Christin wants to know if humidity is a factor when maturing cheese in wax or vacuum sealed.

Don’t forget that you can leave a voicemail message that I will answer and feature during the show.  Just remember that I cannot answer them straight away, so please don’t expect an instant reply.

Support the show!
