Lactose-intolerant cheese lovers, take heart

Wendy M. Levy is a veteran cheesemonger and proprietor of Brattleboro Cheese. She writes for The Commons Online, on why cheese may be more accessible than you think if you are “lactose intolerant”.

One of the saddest sights for a cheesemonger is a person who comes into the shop with friends and declines to share the cheese plate because of “lactose intolerance.”

You see it in their eyes: the longing for a bite of blue, a sliver of Piave, a nugget of Ossau-Iraty. They bravely hold back their tears as their friends dig in to a chunk of cheddar.

It makes me want to give them a tissue, but since I don’t keep any behind the counter, the next best thing I can offer them is the good news about their relationship with cheese, and how it’s about to change.

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.
