As you linger in front of the massive cheese cases at Murray’s attempting to make a decision or three on what will be your next cheese, just below is many types of cheese aging to perfection. This video is tempting. Affinage, the careful maturation of cheese, is both an art and a science. However, one thing I know for sure, I don’t think I could be left alone here.
Bluebird Tavern in Burlington, Vermont through a series of video postcards under TendTV features its supplying producers. The series is good viewing. In this episode they visit The Cellars at Jasper Hill in Greensboro Vermont to chat with cheese makers Mateo Kehler and Vince Razionale. I swooned seeing all that cheese aging.

And as a bonus, Marcella the Cheesemonger has a macaroni and cheese recipe using their alpine cheese. Double swoon.
