Camel Milk, Pig Cheese? Salon goes deep into the oddball dairy section.
Salon writer Benjamin Phelan went looking for why cows are our #1 milkers, and all other animals fall somewhere behind, digging around for a sample of pig's milk ricotta and discovering what I've always said about shepherds:
'The sheep people are a weird bunch,' says one chef, who wanted to remain anonymous so as not to offend his favorite cheesemaker. 'Sheep are difficult to raise, and fickle. You don't get much yield, and the cheese isn't that popular, so you're talking about an eccentric person.'
