Clandestine Cheeses of Brazil

Episode 1, from Season 7

The Minas Gerais region of Brazil produces almost as much raw milk cheese as France but, as Will learns, most of it is illegal and must be transported to market in secret. Will visits the stunning Canastra plateau to learn about traditional farm cheese and, after a cooking lesson in how to make the famous Pain de Quejo, he travels further south to the remote Campos Altos region. Here, he discovers a unique cheese made from the milk of longhorn beef cattle, and enjoys a BBQ – Brazilian Gaucho style.
