Imported & Local Artisan Cheese

How a given cheese tastes is the result of a number of complex factors. First and foremost, of course, is the type of milk used: a cow's milk cheese tastes different from a sheep's milk cheese, and a cheese obtained from a combination of water buffalo's milk and goat's milk has its own personality.

The place where the cheese is produced, the season in which it is produced, and how long it is aged are also major determinants of flavor: in general, summer cheese tends to be more flavorful, because the animals feed on aromatic fresh grass and wild herbs rather than dry fodder; and the longer a cheese ages, the sharper and saltier it becomes.
