Who would have thought that the oldest cheese in the world is in China? This cheese has exactly 15 years, corresponds to the age of the proposed food lovers in China’s oldest cheese.
Profood, a society from Hong Kong imports “western” tastes in Asia for particular chinese person: the hobbyist. Its catalog consists of balsamic vinegar, truffles and anchovies… and proposes also a strange cheese: the oldest cheese in the world, called the Bitto. (You can see it in the following picture).
The Bitto is a traditional Italian specialty, made in the Alps, whose peculiarity is that it can be refined over several years. Since early 2012, the food import luxury brand is proud to offer for sale the remaining 20 kg of the oldest cheese in the world, a Bitto from 1997. Incredible? What is more, is that the Chinese cheese market covered by this company are not necessarily big fans of cheese. Indeed, one of the favorite foods of Europe is struggling to export.
Western fortunate passage in Hong Kong will certainly want to try the oldest cheese in the world, which must be pretty strong! Not sure it can convince Asians, who seem to crack more easily for cheese flavored with strawberry or chocolate. That ‘s what it looks like cheese in China!
