photoblog image Cheese warehouse

Cheese warehouse

This is an old way of stocking cheeses after they are made. They have to lie there for months to years, depending on how old the cheese has to become. It is not the way they do it now-a-days anymore, but we saw this in the open-air museum. I think health inspections will not agree with this anymore..... too much risk for contaminations etc. I wasn't able to take a photo inside so I used the entrance door as a frame; a good solution I think.

Not really a cheese eating person, now knowing that they lie there for years and years makes me even less of a cheese eating person sad

@ Suby, I think cheese is really something for Dutch people (and French, but that is a different kind of cheese). I am a cheese-lover myself, the older the cheese is the better it is for me. I also like the blue cheese the french and britisch people make.
i was going to suggest taking the picture from a different angle, but since you were not able to get inside, i think that you did a great job. the cheese looks awesome and ready to gobble.

to chantal....i must be an honorary dutch b/c, aside from swiss cheese, i have never meet a cheese that i don't like.

@ Nicole, cheese is a food that many people don't like but it is something that you must learn to eat and appreciate.
