From Allgäuer mountain cheese in the south to Ziegenrolle goat’s cheese in North Friesland, Germany is cheese country – and a leading cheese producer. A good 1.8 million tons leave Germany’s cheese factories each year and a third of this is exported. So for the next part of our series on Food in Germany we take a closer look at the food that is normally associated with its neighbors.
德國是一個主要出產奶酪的國家 - 從南部的Allgäuer山的奶酪，到北部 North Friesland省的Ziegenrolle羊奶酪。每年有一百八十點○萬噸新鮮的運離德國的奶酪工廠，其中三分之一是出口。因此，在我們的下一個在德國的食品系列中，我們將仔細觀察與它通常有關聯的鄰國之食品。
Charles de Gaulle is said to have once asked, “How on earth are you supposed to govern a country that has over 350 different kinds of cheese?” If there’s any truth in this, then Germans should be pleased that they only have half as many, but are still among the leading cheese-producing nations. Germany produces the most cheese in Europe, followed by France, Italy and the Netherlands. Surprise.
Cheese itself is an ancient product, but systematic production didn’t start in Germany until the Middle Ages. Monasteries played a major role, and their inhabitants were definitely knowledgeable connoisseurs. They also played an important part in the early development of beer, because this beverage was not classed as a food and so the monks brewed it to keep themselves going during the fasting period. Although they didn’t produce the cheese themselves, they wrote down the recipes for the farmers who couldn’t write. They collected the recipes, lent out cheese vats and implements, and received some of the cheese in return.
