Brian, I have not tried to make my own cheese. well, last month I did pitch in making cheddar with the cheesemakers here at work. That was HARD WORK. Cheddaring is probably the most labor-intensive cheesemaking process. Oy vey!

News came out yesterday, also, that Jonathan Frid died a week ago, on Friday the 13th. Not familiar? He was the original "Barnabas" on Dark Shadows. Someone wryly commented that it was the remake trailer that killed him. He was 87.

Parq: No sir, we make nearly all our block cheddars here in the Brattleboro plant, where I'm at. Up in Grafton they make some block cheddars, but those vats are mostly used for our new cave-aged line, since we put the caves up in Grafton.
Oh, and these are cheese caves, not caves where bears and bats live, people! :-D

Send a photo of yourself workin' your nut station, annie, and see who'll post it in a playlist.

My folks were pretty strict with TV rationing. So it was strange to suddenly have an allowed Dark Shadows habit for a while at 4:00 PM weekdays.

My mistake. Typo. "Barnabas" Irene played his "I, Barnabus" on her last Halloween show.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:27am Parq:

Glad you brought it up, Wen. I've seen signs for cave cheese in Union Square, and wondered what the heck that is. As for Jon Frid, I say it was those posters with Mr Depp looking like a skinny Lou Reed that killed him.

  Fri. 4/20/12 9:30am Wendy del Formaggio:

Parq: Cave-aged means the cheese was aged in a room with a temp and humidity specific to the type of cheese it is. If a cheesemaker is making different types of cheese -- washed-rind, soft-ripened, natural rind or clothbound, blue -- there will be different caves for each type because they require different environments, and each has specific molds and bacteria that shouldn't be introduced to the other cheeses. Dig?

  Fri. 4/20/12 9:33am Brian in UK:

Wendy, it's not a Roquefort 'cave'.
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:35am Brian in UK:

Washed-rind in anything specific?
  Fri. 4/20/12 9:36am Wendy del Formaggio:

Brian, no. Roquefort is aged in an actual limestone cave. And there's some Emmentaler and Gruyere that's being aged in the Kaltbach caves, but usually a "cave" is just a temp/humidity-controlled room. There are a few cheesemakers who build or maintain stone caves, but keep in mind: any indigenous molds, yeasts and bacteria will jump right on the cheese.

Brian, washed-rind cheeses are washed in a solution that changes the surface pH. Brine, booze, that sort of thing.

  Fri. 4/20/12 10:24am Wendy del Formaggio:

Doug: Some people really just don't like tomatoes.
Holly in NC: Hi! I don't know Harbison. I'll have to look it up.
Monica: Ashing the rind is an old French trick -- you'll see it on some smaller goat cheeses, but usually ones that aren't meant to be cut. It's not supposed to add to the flavor at all. I don't think the Beekman Boys gave much thought to cheesemongers when they made their cheese. I have no idea what they were thinking, but I'm confident it wasn't anything really cheese-related.

Yeah, noticed the cheese talk, very timely for me as I'm about to start exploring the local cheese producers for the restaurant.
  Fri. 4/20/12 10:43am Wendy del Formaggio:

Marcury: an enviable position! I don't know where you're located, but I bet you'll have fun finding new cheeses wherever you are.

The smell of coffee roasting at D'Amico's in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, was one of the reasons to live in the neighborhood. And I am not a coffee drinker.

Talking of cheese & ash puts me in mind of Morbier. Ofcourse ash is no longer used.

Marcury: lots of good cheeses within a few hours' drive! I'm in SE Vermont.

Brian, whaddaya mean ash is no longer used in Morbier? Where'd you hear that?

ngh we used to have a nightclub near us called 'Shades' then one day the 'S' fell off.

Brian, since I don't have the book I can't confirm. but Rance is gonna have to fight it out with the EU. Their PDO requires a line of charcoal to bisect the cheese.

Henry, I'm Chef at Market Market in Rosendale. Ever been? We have Korean BBQ Short Ribs and Shrimp tacos with Avocado Lime Cream for Dinner.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:08am Brian in UK:

Well I can only quote what he saw in 1987. There were still a few still making it in the traditional way. Though, traditional happened by accident according to hearsay, the cheese was left out overnight waiting for the next days curd by the fire when soot fell down the chimney.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:10am Webhamster Henry:

@marcury: Sure I've been there - you have that tasty Bahn Mi and Bi Bim Bap. I also play there - I'm in Mamalama. .

You know how they say don't go shopping on an empty stomach...? This show/comments is kind of like that. Yeah. :)
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:10am Wendy del Formaggio:

Brian, cheese myths are always so funny. The legend I always heard was that the ash was put on the evening's milking to keep flies off of it. About as appetizing as the chimney detritus. :-D
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:12am marcury:

Henry, very cool, I'll check out the band tonight after work, and yes we do have both those delicious items.

Jill, yes as far as i know.

@Doug - That horrible grinchy neighbor in your old 'hood needs to find a who or 2 to melt his/her nasty heart! What an a#hole.

@Wendy (going way back) - Harbison is a bark-wrapped not-quite runny round of slighty funky rindy deliciousness made/caved at Jasper Hill. Who do you work for? (I was guessing Cabot, Grafton or Shelbourne) And if y'all have bad blood with Jasper Hill I apologize in advance. ;-)
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:49am Van in DC:

I may have to catch the next show (Steinski I mean) on archive. I'm too freaking hungry now from this show :)

Van nibble some toes they grow back. Honest.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:51am Wendy del Formaggio:

Holly, no bad blood w Jasper Hill. I like their cheeses and I've had pleasant chats with Mateo in the past. Harbison sounds like Winnimere, another cheese of theirs which I ADORE. I'll seek out Harbison, thanks :-)
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:52am Brian in UK:

Don't have to be yours.

Drummer, excelled yourself today.
  Fri. 4/20/12 11:52am Van in DC:

is this Paul Jackson, as in, the bass player that played with Herbie Hancock? Or is that someone else?

@Artie - Whole Foods (& I assume Southern Seasons if you're near Chapel Hill). Our WF doesn't always take good care of their artisan cheeses, so keep your receipt. But if all is well it should be *delicious* !!!! :-)

I'm listening a few hours behind because of a busy morning, but wanted to point you to my favorite version of Tin Tin Deo, featuring the song's author, a bass player, and no one else:
  Fri. 4/20/12 5:19pm Doug Schulkind:

Bob, that is stunning, thanks. A little Googling reveals that this bass player went on to perform with...Grandmaster Flash, in the '70s.
