Aiming to make world’s biggest cheese
September 27, 2006 Leave a Comment
Using forklifts, Dutch cheesemakers turned over a thick slab of Dutch cheese weighing nearly 600 kg (1,320 lb) on Tuesday, hoping to claim the title for the world’s largest cheese.
The table-sized cheese, commissioned by Dutch cheese producer Beemster, was gently lifted and turned by forklifts in preparation for an official weighing next week.
Last year, when attempting to break the record, the cheese broke in half when it was being turned. Cheese-turning allows it to ripen evenly.
