Since the 2023 World Cheese Awards will take place in Trondheim, Norway we think it´s the right time to rerun our talk with Norwegian Cheese Maker Bo Jensen!

As you know Gustav and I are ambitious cheese-travelers and if it was on us we would do nothing else but hunt cheeses world-wide. Well, we can´t, but lucky us Gustav charmed some cheese-courriers to do the hunt and bring back some exceptional finds to taste and welcome into our *formaggiastic* community.

There are long ripened, hard cheeses like *Gruyère* from Switzerland that are called washed rind cheese and then there are the little soft ones like *Livarot* from France that are also called washed rind cheese.
