Last July (2013) my friend Addie and I decided we were going to make a cheese together and we both thought that an alpine cheese would be a good choice. We picked one that had a longer aging time as Addie was off to India for work and would not be back until the fall. As you can tell by the title of the post we picked a wonderful cheese from the Savoie region – Beaufort . Well it is now almost the end of June 2014 , work extensions and cheese making consulting gigs delayed him, but now the wait is almost over, he returns at the end of next month. I documented the aging of the cheese from the pressing to the current stages, every so often sending an email to tease him about the cheese. This is the story of the “Beaufort” that waited.
