Englishwoman Kate Arding, who owns a cheese shop — Cowgirl Creamery — in West Marin, California, traveled to Uganda in December 2007. While there, she taught the Karamojong people how to make cheese. A pictorial essay— “Curd and the Karamojong” — appeared in the autumn issue of a new magazine devoted completely to cheese, Culture: The Word on Cheese.
For more on cheesemaking in Africa, see Charles O’Connor’s Traditional Cheesemaking Manual, published by the International Livestock Centre for Africa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
[Note: Don’t you just love this face? For me, this Congo/forest buffalo embodies the importance of bovines for humans through the millennia.]

Yes, isn’t Culture just great? Thanks for the kind remarks about my blog. Yours is full of gorgeous photos, and I love the title.
Gorgeous photo — from the lighting to the subject. I just perused a copy of Culture the other day and am contemplating a subscription. Great stuff.
I’m fairly new to your blog as well, but am enjoying immensely! Such important stuff — and so well presented.
I just found your blog as I was looking for some information on Marlena de Blasi, whose books I’m reading now. Fabulous! I will be back here, and often. Thanks for such (forgive me) delicious writing!! -Hilary
