#25 Cheesemaking with Normande Cows

In the community of Curacautín in the Araucanía Region of southern Chile, María Mardones makes artisanal cheeses from the milk of Normande cattle. Normande cattle are native to France and produce up to 27 liters of milk twice a day. The milk of this kind of cow is especially suited to the production of cheeses and creams because of the properties of its proteins. In addition, the cheeses produced by María Mardones are free of preservatives and chemical additives.
