Abstract The French Alps and Savoy are covered with snow for at least four months during the year, so cheese making has always been a seasonal affair. Host Will Studd learns how the local spruce forest plays an essential role in ripening the unctuous Mont d'Or, and then heads to the high summer pastures to visit a farm making the deliciously creamy Reblochon and learns how to grill it under hot coals. Finally, it's on to meet one of the last cheese makers still making the 'Prince of Gruyere', Beaufort, and its smaller cousin Abondance high in the Alps.
