Cornell Big Red Cheddar

This fall, there will be a new big cheese on campus. Cornell Big Red Cheddar is slated to hit campus eateries and the shelves of the Cornell Store in November.

Cornell Big Red is actually white: a six-month aged mild white cheddar, to be packaged in bright red one- and two-pound wheels and sold online and in campus retail outlets such as Cornell Orchards and The Cornell Store.

It was unveiled at a special tasting event April 24 at Morrison Hall, where 30 people sampled three potential formulations and voted on their favorite.

The cheeses were developed by dairy extension specialist Rob Ralyea, with the help of Brian Bailey, master cheese maker at Yancey’s Fancy cheese company, and Howard Van Buren of Chr. Hansen, an international company that develops natural ingredients for the food, pharmaceutical, nutritional and agricultural industries.

Their formulations combined tried and proven bacterial cultures with a new one, according to Van Buren.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
