Cheese royalty is in the house this week on Cutting the Curd! Join Greg Blais as he chats with Peter Dixon and Benton Brown on a candid and insightful episode of the world’s best cheese radio show. Peter Dixon is a dairy foods consultant and artisan cheesemaker. His work with people engaged in or interested in making cheese and other dairy products draws on 30 years of cheesemaking and 15 years of consulting. Peter works with dairy farmers and experienced or aspiring cheesemakers to research, develop, or improve their milk processing businesses. Benton Brown is behind Crown Finish Caves, a cheese aging operation in Brooklyn, NY. This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.
By the end of the century, the world may well have to accommodate ten billion inhabitants—roughly the equivalent of adding two new Indias. Sustaining that many people will require farmers to grow more food in the next seventy-five years than has been produced in all of human history. For most of the past ten thousand years, feeding more people simply meant farming more land. That option no longer exists; nearly every arable patch of ground has been cultivated, and irrigation for agriculture already consumes seventy per cent of the Earth’s freshwater. — Michael Specter on Vandana Shiva’s crusade against genetically modified crops. I rarely read something that changes my opinion as quickly and completely as this article. (via maxistentialist)
