The Viking Cheeses of Norway

Episode 1, from Season 5

Will travels to the spectacular fjords of Norway to look at rare skimmed-milk cheeses that date back to Viking times. After learning about a traditional fresh cow's milk cheese called Pulltost, he visits a family that makes a cheese called Gammelost, which lives up to its notorious reputation for smelling like old socks. Finally, Will visits the beautiful 'valley of the goats', where he samples Ghetost, an ancient sweet, brown caramel cheese that is remarkably similar to fudge.
