Mary’s Story on Tilsit:
After several years of working with Gouda Cheese. Mary was teaching a woman named vuselat from Turkey who had been staying with her and Joe for several weeks on the farm. Before she left to go back to her homeland, she asked Mary if there was anything that she could do for her. Mary replied, “You know I have been wanting to make the cheese known as Tilsit.” Her guest replied that she had the perfect recipe in her office. The recipe came in the mail written in Turkish. After translating into English, Mary started developing her own recipe which took 3 years to perfect the cheese the way she envisioned it.
