Cheese Mites: Pests or Flavor Enhancers?

Hosted by

Ann Mah is the author of Mastering the Art of French Eating. She talks about cheese mites, those little bugs, that give Mimolette, a cheese traditionally made in Mille France, its unmistakable flavor. Last year, the FDA declared Mimolette unfit for human consumption because of the mites. She wrote a great piece on French regional food in the dining section of last weekend's New York Times.
