It’s been a long time since my last post, what with moving countries and starting a new cheesy job, but coming soon will be information about my cheese related tour of India (yes you heard that right). You may be surprised to hear that I found more than just a few fantastic cheese makers. From the southern hills of Tamil Nadu to the foothills of the mighty Himalayas, India has a wealth of marvellous cheese and I’m going to tell you all about it. Sadly when I was in Bangladesh I had my phone stolen, which held more than a small amount of info about my travels including painstakingly organised interviews with the makers themselves but I shall endure to paint a picture of what I found and spread the good word of what’s happening over there. See you soon
It’s not to late to enter this weeks photo contest. Snap a picture of your favorite cheese, tag it @murrayscheese and #cheeseme. You could win a big old bag full of funk!
Cheese photo people get snapping
JOWETT CHEESE LTD.: Chapter one "Build A Dairy", almost completed. Chapter two "Cheesemaking" is beginning
Today was an incredibly monumental day for the JC project: it was the first time I’ve brought milk into the dairy… And bringing milk into the dairy means cheese is being made!

soon to be blogging Turkish and Indian cheeses
see below for some pictures of the ewes and cows milk lactic cheeses that were made under the expert guidance of Ivan, ‘the cheese ninja’.
