What do you like about this subject?

The sheer variety of cheeses made throughout the world make this a never-ending topic for discussion.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I still want to open a real "brick-and-mortar" cheese shop.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Orange colored cheese (American, some Cheddars, etc) are just that -colored! Milk is white so all cheese should then be white. Unless it's colored with something to make it orange. Don't worry, it's just Annatto!

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

The "Raw Milk Vs. Pasteurization" debate in the cheese-making process.
