Am hoping a subtitled version of the The War of Smelly Cheese documentary La guerre des fromages qui puent is released online. Directed by Gilles Capelle via @GalaxieComm, it is said to explore the export of ancient French secrets of manufacture to America, and the investment in North America to meet insatiable demand. Sadly, in France, the situation is reversed, with raw milk cheeses representing only a tenth of national output.
Interestingly, the official inauguration of the North American Chapter of the International Guilde de Fromagers recently took place, joining Chapters alongside nations such as Italy, Spain the UK and France. Seems consumers and professionals alike are responding to a sanitised culture that has invaded their microbial ecosystems. Are we witnessing a migration and/or demise of these?
