    “Deputy Ponce and Deputy Berg found him and, due to previous calls, knew where he lived,” according to the statement. The deputies hatched a plan. “They lured him back home with Doritos one of our deputies had in her lunch bag,” the statement said. “They made a trail and he followed.” “We were able to put him back in and secure the gate,” Deputy Ponce said. “It was fun!”

    Residue on 7,200 year old pottery found in Croatia has pushed back the dawn of cheese making in the Mediterranean. The find resets the timeline of agriculture in the region, with fermented dairy products being made a mere five centuries after milk was first stored. But its innovation was more than just a culinary milestone for dairy connoisseurs – it could have been a life saver. … Archaeological data shows people have been growing crops and raising livestock in the region for roughly 8,000 years. Impressed Ware, named for the simple shell-like impressions used to decorate the clay. They form...

  • Stinking Bishop: The story of a masterpiece

    08/12/2018 5:29:25 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 3 replies
    What can be said about Stinking Bishop that hasn’t been said a million times before? We’ve wanted to include a feature on this legendary cheese for a while now but it’s become so famous that most cheese lovers are fully aware of the story: Charles Martell first produced his perry-washed rind cheese in 1972 on Laurel Farm, in Dymock, Gloucestershire by chance: he didn’t set out to make cheese, it came about as a sideline while conserving the rapidly diminishing breed of Gloucestershire cows. When it appeared in the Wallace and Gromit film, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit in which...

    Baffled residents have been left scratching their heads after finding blocks of cheese popping up in bushes and gardens around an inner-Melbourne suburb. Residents have shared pictures of large tasty cheese blocks stashed in yards, pot plants, and reserves across Elwood in recent weeks, causing alarm among pet owners who have reported dogs vomiting up the dairy item. ... Vivienne Forbes said her friend’s pooch ate some of the mystery cheese without an upset, but she was baffled by where it came from. “My friend’s dog came out of the bushes near st kilda dog beach with a block of cheese in its...
  • After searching for years, Wisconsin woman learns her sister lives next door

    Hillary Harris was adopted as an infant. She searched for her birth family as an adult, and after many years, her search was incomplete. She knew she had a half sister, and she knew the sister's name from her adoption file, but she couldn't find her. At night, Harris would Google her sister's name - Dawn Johnson - and scour Facebook photos of the thousands of Dawn Johnsons out there. She would peer into their faces, trying to see if any of them looked like her. Maybe just a little? Then one day last year, a strange thing happened. A...
  • Niagara cop found guilty of cheese smuggling (from 2015)

    Niagara Regional Police Const. Scott Heron has been found guilty of four criminal charges that include conspiracy to smuggle cheese and chicken wings across the border from the United States into Canada. Heron, 42, had been charged with six counts, three of which related to the Customs Act, and three breach of trust charges that related to his duties as a police officer. Heron was found guilty on all three of the charges laid under the Customs Act, but only one breach of trust charge. Justice James Ramsay delivered his decision on Friday following a five-day trial in the Superior...

    As New Hampshire’s moose population struggles, the state fish and game department is asking people to submit photos of moose taken in New Hampshire from May 1 to May 15, as part of its spring moose survey. The photos help biologists monitor the health of the herd. One family in Merrimack got an up-close photo of a moose, which wandered into their yard and right up to the window. Resident Nichole DiVietro caught the moose’s surprise visit on video and posted it on YouTube, where it has received more than 10,000 views as of Thursday night. The video shows the...

    Commentary: In a video posted online, a customer reportedly wants to check if a new battery is authentic -- using his teeth. Cue explosion.Some things might seem obvious. But even these things are worth mentioning occasionally. Please, therefore, allow me to say these words: Don't bite your phone battery. I base this apparently absurd entreaty on a video that's making its way around the web. It appears to show someone in a Chinese electronics store. As the Taiwan News reports, the customer was looking for a replacement battery for his phone last Friday. The news outlet insists that the action...

    The Sunday after Thanksgiving often coincides with what Catholics know as the First Sunday in Advent. This year things are different because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and will double as the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Going back to its religious roots, Advent is a time of waiting for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus Christ, and for most Germans that first Sunday is the official “kick off” to the holiday season. It is common for families to have a beautifully decorated tabletop wreath with four candles in their homes, and one additional candle being lit every Sunday...

    A radical new guide to the ever-widening world of cheese takes an accessible approach: Begin with what you love Up to now, cheese guides have tended to focus more on where and how cheese is made than on how best to enjoy it. Meanwhile, according to the USDA, Americans’ annual consumption of natural (as opposed to processed) cheese increased from 19.3 to 29.47 pounds per capita between 1995 and 2015, and the range of cheeses to choose from has become downright daunting. The time has come for “The Book of Cheese: The Essential Guide To Discovering Cheeses You’ll Love,” published...

    The buttery cheese, named after the word “doormat” for a very specific reason, dates to the 17th century. Naomi Tomky August 15, 2017 When my Quebec City tour guide mentions that the island we’re heading to has the oldest cheese in North America, I’m briefly concerned. A grotesque vision of a 150-year-old pickle my friend Harriet once told me about flashes before my eyes. But, what I learn upon arriving at the Île d'Orléans, 15 minutes from the capital, is that Paillasson is simply the oldest style of cheese in North America—it’s made fresh on the island, tastes extremely good...

    DETROIT (WWJ) – Would you like to lose weight, have more energy, better health? Then stop eating cheese. That’s according to Dr. Neal Barnard, who’s down on dairy. Barnard says while Americans seem to have a love affair with cheese, it’s more of an unhealthy addiction. He makes his case in his book “The Cheese Trap.” “I think it’s addicting; and I don’t use the addicting word lightly,” he told WWJ’s Dr. Deanna Lites. “There are actually opiate chemicals in it that attach to the very same brain receptors as other opiates, and I’m going to argue that it’s probably...
