What is Artisan or Artisanal Cheese? The word (artisan) or (artisanal) implies that a cheese is produced primarily by hand, in small batches, with particular attention paid to the tradition of the cheesemaker's art, and thus using as little mechanization as possible in the production of the cheese. Artisan, or Artisanal, cheeses may be made from all types of milk and may include various flavorings.
