Have you ever looked at your Gourmet Greek Cheese and wondered, how on earth did they wax this round of cheese? Well, wonder no more because we have all the answers you need regarding our waxed cheese friend.
We spent some time in our Cheesery, carefully watching one of our cheese makers, Bonga, waxing the cheese. It might seem like a simple and easy job, but in reality, it is an art form and apparently a bit of a workout according to our head cheese-maker, Filia! The smaller rounds are between 200 grams and 3 kilograms and the bigger rounds are between 5 kilograms and 7 kilograms! That is some big cheese rounds! These rounds are all waxed by hand and therefore it involves having arm strength and endurance as there are about 20 cheese rounds that are waxed at a time.
Watch this short video to see how Bonga waxes our cheeses and how beautiful it looks when it is done with love and care!
