Episode 3: Debbie's internship with cheesemakers in Italy

Debbie Driscoll had an amazing cheesemaking experience volunteering at two cheese factories in Italy, and we review her trip during this podcast.

She visited Podere Paugnano near the Tuscan city of Radicondoli. In this video Giovanna, co-owner of the cheese plant, shows the different styles of sheep cheese that they produce.

By networking while volunteering at her first cheesemaker, she managed to secure a second volunteering position at Caseificio Piandelmedico near the city of Jesi on the west coast of Italy. Here you see their cheesemakers working with and stretching Mozzarella.

Debbie researched cheesemakers who accepted volunteers through these two sites: World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms and Help Exchange.
