In Italy, They Bail Out Cheesemakers
After the Italian government buys 100,000 beautiful wheels of Parmigiano Reggiano and donates them to charity, buffalo mozzarella producers want their own bailout, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Where will the bailouts stop? Nobody knows. But the Journal article sheds interesting light on the cheesemakers' products -- and their dilemma.
I hope the cheese biz in Wisconsin is doing OK.
