    Austrian cheese by the numbers:⁠

    🧀 There are around 450 types of cheese made in #Austria.⁠
    🌳 1/3 of Austria's 20.9 million acres is dedicated to agriculture (and all of them are GMO-free).⁠
    🧑‍🌾 90% of dairy farms are family owned.⁠
    🐄 The average dairy farm has 22 cows.⁠

    At our recent #virtualcounterculture we spoke to Thomas Gasteiner, an Austrian cheese pro, and got to learn more about Austria's traditional mountain cheeses. You can find the presentation at our #linkinbio⁠

    Meet your next favorite wine: Verdejo. Produced in rocky soil and a desert-like climate, Rueda is not your typical wine country. Here, sandy clay soil, scorching summers, and frigid winters force grapevines to struggle, and the result is a world-class wine that is equally home at a summertime picnic as it is in a Michelin-starred restaurant. ⁠

    Is there anything better than melted cheese?

    Short answer: No.
    Long answer: Melted cheese scraped from the wheel directly onto a pile of potatoes.

    This sexy wheel is Fromage de Bagnes from @fromagerie_de_verbier in Switzerland, the home of #raclette

    Why make your own compound butter when you can just use blue cheese? In this #crostini recipe, Grand Noir acts like a decadent butter when placed on top of hot, seared steak. The result is an appetizer that is multi-textured and packed with flavor. So grab some Grand Noir and take your holiday gathering to the next level with these elegant crostinis that feature the silky, bold, melt-in-your-mouth Grand Noir #bluecheese. ⁠

    Todays makers of #parmigianoreggianodop may use modern technologies in their production facilities, but the recipes and techniques are rooted in a thousand years of history. There is a consortium that upholds strict production standards to ensure quality and uniformity.

    Here are some of the rules they must abide by:
    - No silage EVER: #silage is feed that has been #fermented in a silo. While #cows do find it tasty, it requires the additive lysozyme to kill bacteria in the feed. No additives are ever allowed in #parmesan
    - The use of starter cultures is forbidden: whey from the pervious day’s #cheesemaking is used as a #culture.
    - Any cut and wrap MUST take place in the designated region: this is necessary to ensure product is authentic, and packaged immediately after a wheel is cut open.

    Steampunk affineur 🔥 🧀

    Here Grana Padano is being flame-blasted to kill any contaminants before it gets shipped out. They only do this when a whole wheel is sold, not to the wheels that are broken down and packaged in their facility.

    Stay tuned for much more on Italy’s amazing DOP cheeses!!
