Cheese maker John Savage-Onstwedder of Teifi Farmhouse Cheese, Cardiganshire

I’ve never been to Wales, and I’ve certainly never met John Savage-Onstwedder of Teifi Farmhouse Cheese, but I like him.

He’s one of a few cheesemakers worldwide who have started campaigns to help relieve the pressure on Italian cheesemakers since the devastating earthquake earlier this year.

The Save A Cheese campaign is being led by award-winning artisan cheese maker John Savage-Onstwedder of Teifi Farmhouse Cheese, Cardiganshire.

His raw milk cheeses have won countless awards – including The James Aldridge Memorial Trophy for Best British Raw Milk Cheese.

He says he could not stand by when he heard of the plight of his fellow producers in Italy and is traveling to the region to meet producers. As an organic farmer he will try to source certified organic Parmesan.

He said: “As an artisan, raw milk cheesemaker, I understand how important it is to support raw milk cheesemakers wherever they may be because they are an endangered species, not just in the UK, but all over Europe.”

The story via Welsh cheesemaker leads bid to save quake-hit Parmesan – Cardigan – Local news – News – Daily Post North Wales.

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.
