When you travel and eat this much cheese, it is easy to fall in love with the stories of those you meet. In our new social media endeavor, Charlie and I will be sharing, through film, these stories with our fellow cheese lovers.
Cheese has been the motivating force for most of our adult travels and experiences. It has introduced us to chefs and bussers, entrepreneurs and migrants, cheese makers and TV producers. It has taken us to the peaks and caves of Europe, and just as many rotten wood tables as fine tablecloths.
And yet, in all our study and experience, cheese continues to be a mystery. Amateurs and experts both stand in awe of its undisclosed secrets. How ironic that it is so simple to learn about. You don’t need to be in a lab or cave, or need to travel back in time. You just have to taste it.
Behind every wheel and bite of cheese is a story. We hope you enjoy ours.
