What is an Affineur?
Likewise, what is the name of a person who makes cheese?
An expert cheese seller is called a’cheesemonger’. An expert in aging cheese (i.e., produced byfarms and collected still young) is called a ‘affineur’. Anexpert in making cheese is simply a’cheesemaker’.
Beside above, where can you age cheese? A basic room or porch thermometer will work just fine,and some wine refrigerators come with one. Next, you need to thinkabout humidity. Cheese likes to be aged at about55° to 65F, with about 70% humidity. You can put a bowl orglass of cool water, about half full, inside your wine refrigeratorand keep it there.
Thereof, what is a cheese cave?
