Image: Making Caerphilly a Century Ago

Here’s a delightful bit of artisan cheesemaking history!


“Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis celebrated his 77th birthday last week surrounded by family and friends. But one of the gifts showered on him tickled him extra pink.

Caerphilly cheese pupils at Worthy Farm, Pilton, in the early 1900s.

Among the presents was an old postcard showing the Caerphilly cheese pupils learning the art of cheesemaking in the early 1900s. Supervising their tuition on the right of the picture is Mr Eavis’ grandfather William George, who died in 1944 aged 80.”

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.
