Bafut: a Cameroon cheese

Dairy Industries International 59(6): 27, 29
Bafut: a Cameroon cheese
In the Cameroon, milk production is comparatively undeveloped and most of the available cow milk is produced by the Fulani cattlemen from the Adamaoua Plateau or the NW of the country. In the latter region, Bafut cheese is made in the village of Bafut. It is a hard, cylindrical cheese weighing about 2 kg, covered by a dry, hard rind. It has a strong, acidic flavour. To make the cheese, raw milk is taken from a mixed herd of Jersey and Jersey or Boran x White Fulani cows.
