Jasper Hill Philosophy

March 7th, 2006

Mateo

After listening to all the audio we recorded at Jasper Hill, a consistent theme emerged: the philosophy of terroir. But not just terroir that we hear when dealing with taste but terroir in the most fundamental sense… this land, this area, this community. The fierce determination and pride of looking to the local rather than the easy and accustomed path of the global.

We cut a few pieces from our interview with Mateo.

Our Response
**For those that are new to the cheese world, we will be building a glossary of terms for things like “AOC” (which is a reference to European system of classifications for things like cheese and wine - Comte and Beaufort are their own AOC as are many established cheeses) and will post it in our “Pages” section and reference it as needed.

    The project is great. Very interesting . This will help many people to know more about the subject and to find out about different tastes.
