Caroline’s Transhumance Seminar at ACS

July 26, 2018

If you are at the conference of the American Cheese Society (ACS) in Pittsburgh don’t miss this opportunity. Caroline will have a seminar about transhumance where you can learn about a centuries old tradition. The powerpoint presentation takes place on Saturday morning (2nd slot).

Right now we have over 70 customers in our Adopt-an-Alp program which supports transhumance in Switzerland. This is an increase of 22% compared to last year!

Forget low-fat – eat dairy fat!

July 13, 2018

This is a blow to all those lowfat-nodairy worshippers: A study done by The University of Texas Health Center at Houston over a period of 22 years (!) found no link between dairy fats and cause of death or, more specifically, heart disease and stroke. Quite the contrary: The findings, published in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition”, say that one fatty acid present in dairy may lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, particularly from stroke!

Really, fat is good. Just ask Oetzi, the stoneage man discovered under ice in the Italian Alps in 1992. The recent analysis of his stomach showed that the 5300 years old mummy did not just eat vegetables, fruit and berries. No, he followed also a diet that was high in animal protein and fat. Scientists found remains of ibex and venison in his stomach.

In other words: Throw that lowfat stuff out.

The stomach of the Iceman “Oetzi” is well preserved and completely filled (arrows).

We are extremely proud and excited that after Eleven Madison Park/The Nomad another 3-star-Michelin operation has made the decision to work with Quality Cheese: The Restaurant at Meadowood in the Napa Valley – known to meticulously source ingredients and products – received Caroline for an extensive tasting on May 4. Our products were very well received, and we know they will be beautifully exposed in this wonderful environment.
