Learn about traditional cheeses—where to buy them, how to cook with them, how they are made, and more! Traditional cheeses are made by men and women following time-tested techniques, such as using raw milk or allowing for the development of native bacterial cultures and fungi, making cheese in copper vats, or aging on wood boards and even in underground caves. These practices are worth preserving as important parts of our global gastronomic heritage, and as a way to support rural communities around the world.
