Each week we scan our Facebook and Twitter pages for photos submitted by our fans. For your chance to be featured on our blog and win an issue of the magazine, post a delicious, cheesy image to facebook.com/culturecheesemag or twitter.com/culturecheese tagged with #culturefanphoto.
This week’s fan photo winner is Pauline L., who posted her gnarly pic of pecorino aged “in fossa,” or in a pit. This practice, which dates as far back as the 15th century, involves wrapping cheeses in cloth bags before placing them in a sealed hay-lined pit to age. In the case of the pecorino pictured above, the resulting cheese resembles the wooden cutting board it sits atop. We wish we could have been there to try it!
Congrats, Pauline! Look for your free issue in the mail. Keep on cheesin’!Photo Credit: Featured image courtesy of Eric C Bryan via Compfight
