Artisan Cheeses of Germany
Episode 9, from Season 5
Germany has a long history of cheese making, dating back to pre-Roman times, and it is also the largest producer of cheese in Europe. After travelling to the Alps to look at a seasonal mountain cheese called Bergkase, Will visits a small biodynamic farm to discover how quark, Germany's most popular fresh cheese, is made. Will ventures north to taste some Tilsiter, and then calls in on a cheese-maker monk, who sings as he makes ewe's cheese from the milk of his beloved flock.
