Middle Ages

 

Our Greatest Contributors - The Monks

During the Middle Ages there were a lot of new developments and innovation.  We owe a lot of this to the Monks. 

Much of the classic varieties of cheese we have today were developed in monasteries where cheese making became and art.  Many of these traditions and methods were passed on from generation to generation and from monastery to monastery. 

The Middle Ages have been described as the "golden age" of cheese making.
