1 Gorgonzola / Cave Ripened Tallegio - Northern Italy

3 Parmigiano Reggiano / Grana Padano - Italy
Parmigiano Reggiano is the undisputed king of Italian cheese and is still made by hand the old fashioned way in giant copper cauldrons. Will Studd explains the extraordinary steps taken to control production of this wonderful cheese.
4 Pecorino - Tuscany, Italy
Pecorino is one of the most ancient of all European cheeses, and in this episode Will Studd explains the different types before travelling to Tuscany to visit the Il Forteto dairy.
5 Camembert - France
Camembert is a potent symbol of French cheese making and is copied all over the world. If you want the real thing, look no further than traditional Normandy Camembert which is made under strict AOC rules from unpasteurised milk.

The world's most copied cheese is Cheddar which originally came from the green countryside of Somerset in England. In this episode, Will Studd travels to meet the last two farm producers of cloth bound cheddar.

About this show

There is a revolution happening in the world of cheese. The growing consumer interest in how cheese is made, and where it comes from is encouraging an exciting global resurgence in artisanal cheese making. We are demanding tastier, more interesting cheeses with distinctive flavours, textures, and aromas. But in order to recognise them we need to know what is out there, and what makes the difference. Cheese Slices will stimulate you to eat, encourage you to travel, and most importantly help you to choose the finest artisan cheese to keep the revolution going.
