|Pyeongchang on the map|
Located on the highlands of Pyeongchang county, the Uiyaji Wind Village is a mountain village situated on top of Daegwalleyong, about 800 meters above sea level. Because of its abundant early winter snowfall, it was also one of the first places for skiing in Korea.
Similar to Kimchi School the day before, we were assigned a lady host who will teach us the process. Our lady host does not speak Mandarin, so Kent acts as our interpreter. We are assigned as a table for our family and the drum roll begins. The cheese making process are more akin of making tofu, and to the delight of Little M, he got the 'major' tasks of adding ingredients, stirring and deciding what decorative to put on our cheese on the step-by-step cues of our lady host. Little M was all smile and proudly showed off his cheese at the end of the process. We had a good time and we finished off our cheese at the end of the session.
Here are some pictures I took cheese-making at Uiyaji Wind farm:
