    www.bogdarnya.ru. they do delivery. but since we/they are out from moscow, 130 km, there is a minimum order of 4000 rubles. transport is also a factor. and no one is coming for 1 kgr cheese to town. we/they also have FRESH milk, Kefir and Yogurt. Plus farm raised beef. if/when you are 3 or 4 people together, 4000 rubles is nothing.
    we/they have an additional cheese maker now, an italian lady. check in for sure often, it will be exiting.


    i/we also got a smoke and drying-curing house built, so Salami and Biltong will be on the site soon....

    i hope admin does not mind a little self promotion on MY part

    Cheese that has been aged 90 days "Brest-Litovsk Vyderzhany"

    I finally found a really good cheese from Belarus. It is aged for 90 days and called "Brest-Litovsk Vyderzhany" available in Billa and not expensive.

    Here is a link from the producers website:

    check out these cheeses-
    www.ichalki.ru

    PARMEZAN (with z) because the Italians have protected their trademark, so there is only italian Parmesan around. and as you maybe know, italian parmesan aged only 6 month is also soft. only parmesan aged 12 to 24 months is hard....


    Ben , I have been using this for cooking with, made in Sverdlovsk 200 Rubles, really hard to tell the difference when it is in a cheese sauce , add it to Bechamal for lasagna , in a carbonara . I use my Italian for shavings et al.

    -Parmesan- is only a protected name and brand

    one thing is for sure, local producers like to jump on the band wagon and make money. parmesan has to age not less than 6 month. 24+ is the best. but that takes time and money to invest into cellars, storage space, coolers for summer, heaters for winter. and that is a MILLION investment, and not everyone has it.

    Try Rossiysky (Российский) - wherever I bought it, it proved to be up to the mark.
