Culture magazine has caught up with a team of documentary filmmakers who are traipsing through 15 Central Asian and Middle Eastern countries in search of cheese made from camel’s milk.

It’s a bit of a strange quest, but the team is admirable for how much untrod ground they’re likely to explore and for–despite having just gotten started on their journey—putting together a beautiful and strictly to-the-point exploration of the making of (and culinary uses for) camel’s milk cheese in Mongolia. (Bonus factoid: While you make your camel’s milk cheese, you can simultaneously make an intoxicating liquor!)
