From the Mountains to the Table

Unmistakably good: what has made alpine cheese from Vorarlberg so special for 2000 years are the original method of its production and its distinctive taste, characterized by the grasses and herbs of the alpine meadows. In 'From the Mountains to the Table' Kurt Bracharz vividly describes why cheese and its production are so highly regarded in the west of Austria. He tells of the love of nature and hard work which have shaped the people and their traditions to this day. Sophisticated recipes from starred chefs Mike Schwarzenbacher and Florian Mairitsch as well as impressive photographs of life on the alp, of the cultivation of traditions, and of cheese production, make this book into a beautiful homage to the alpine dairy and its cheese. - Texts by Kurt Bracharz, published by Josef Rupp - Everything you want to know about the various alpine dairy products - Historical facts about cheese making in Vorarlberg - Insights into the alpine dairymen's work throughout the year - Cooking with cheese then and now - Numerous delicious recipes and atmospheric photos Kurt Bracharz, born 1947, writer, children's author, and columnist, lives in Bregenz. Numerous literary awards, including the Vorarlberg Booksellers Award (2003). His latest book is 'Mein Appetit Lexikon' (Haymon, 2010). Josef J. Rupp III., has been CEO of the Private Cheese Company Rupp, the third-generation family business, since 1986. Food and drink are among his passions; alpine cheese is a matter close to his heart.

From the Mountains to the Table

Milk,Cream, and Sour Cream

There is a confusing abundance of types of milk - fresh milk, organic milk, light milk, ESL-Milk, or UHT-milk - in Vorarlberg's supermarkets today. Here we are only interested in hay-milk, which, by the way, is the most gently treated milk on the market, quite apart from its other virtues. It arrives daily on the cooling shelves and keeps but six days at the most. Whoever can by hay-milk directly from a farmer or a dairy is of course better off, but must boil this milk like any other raw milk.

Cream, the fat won from the milk by skimming off or centrifugation is the starting point for butter, sour cream, whipping cream and crème fraîche. For sour cream, sweet cream is mixed with sour milk or sour cream as a starter for acidification.
