Christopher Dach, A.K.A. “The Cottage Cheese Doc,” is the cottage cheese ‘cook’ at Westby Cooperative Creamery in WI, where he makes cottage cheese in “large vats.” A reader was kind enough to submit (something I encourage people to do more often, or ever) this beautiful steesh for all of us to get a look at.
It was surprising to me to read the process of making cottage cheese. I was under the impression that cottage cheese was made from leaving milk out in the scorching heat for days on end. Another feather in the cap of the Internet for teaching me something new today!
