Västerbottensost is a creature of habit—make that a *cheese* of habit. It’s been crafted for over a hundred years in the same factory in the same Swedish village, using milk from the same area. Any attempt to recreate it elsewhere has flopped. Its creators themselves confused, Västerbottensost holds a lingering mystery: what the heck makes it taste so good? Some say it’s because of a meteor that hit the town 20,000 years ago, others blame some very special bacteria ... but why not do some sleuthing of your own?
