Discovery Travel & Living to say ‘Cheese’ from July 22

Discovery Travel & Living is aiming for the viewers’ palate with its new series ‘Cheese Slices’. Premiering on July 22, the 10-episode series is an extraordinary odyssey through the world’s definitive cheese producing regions in a quest to showcase the world’s great cheeses.

This series would be hosted by author, television presenter and cheese legend Will Studd. Filmed across three continents, ‘Cheese Slices’ explores the traditions and tastes behind famous benchmark cheeses and extensively covers international artisan and farmhouse cheeses.

Commenting on the new series, Rahul Johri, SVP & General Manager, Discovery Communications India, said, “Anyone who enjoys cheese and wants to know more about where it comes from, how it is made or what it should taste like, this entertaining series makes essential viewing. After watching ‘Cheese Slices’, one can be sure that eating cheese will never be quite the same again. The series also reiterates our promise of introducing refreshing programming formats and the best of global lifestyle.”

According to series host William Studd, “There is a revolution happening in the world of cheese today. To ensure it continues, it is vital to explain the significance of artisan and farmhouse cheese to consumers. If we want to continue to enjoy great cheese with interesting flavours and textures, we need to encourage a better understanding of the wonderful varieties available today and what makes them so different to predictable mass produced cheese.”

Under the spotlight in the television series is Gorgonzola – the grand daddy of all European blue cheeses made from cow’s milk; Parmigiano Reggiano – the undisputed king of Italian cheese made by hand the old fashioned way; Pecorino – one of the most ancient European cheeses produced by a group of social reformers formed in the 1970s; and Cheddar cheese from England – the world’s most copied cheese.

Also part of the line up is Camembert – a potent symbol of French cheese made under strict rules from unpasteurised milk; the legend of Roquefort – the most popular blue cheese of France; and some unusual varieties made by hand from raw milk found in Ireland.
