The hole truth about Jarlsberg cheese | theguardian.com

I’m sitting in a dusty beige room in the bowels of a Norwegian cheese factory, watching a man in rimless glasses called Stig patiently point his way around a diagram of the cheesemaking process.

He’s talking about pH levels and micro filtration, which is making me strangely twitchy because such petty details seem irrelevant compared to the real issue: how on earth do they get the holes in the cheese? It’s like that old primary school hymn: “Who put the colours in the rainbow/Who put the salt into the sea?”, except I sense there’s a better answer than “God” here, and I’m determined to get to the bottom of it.

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.
