“David Lagnese, who owns PA Made Cheese and sells Western Pennsylvania cheeses at his East Liberty store and at the Farmers@Firehouse, has leased a space in a 103-year old limestone mine in Brady’s Bend. The Armstrong County caves offer temperature and humidity at ideal cheese-friendly levels — 56 degrees and 90-plus humidity, for storing and “ripening” products made by Western Pennsylvania cheesemakers.

“Cheese aging, or affinage, is a luxury most Western Pennsylvania cheesemakers have not had because they lack space and expertise,” Mr. Lagnese said. “This facility is not happening a moment too soon. Sam Byler, of Riverview Dairy, has many wheels of sheep cheese ready to go into the cave now…”

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.
