Episode 27: Jay Close
On today’s show, we sit down with cheesemaker, Jay Close, who owns and operates 33cheese.ru, Cheese by Jay, located in Moshnitsy, about an hour from Moscow. On the show we discuss Jay’s life, his travels around the world, ‘the machete’ story, killing wild boar, getting married in Italy, living in Paris, selling Harley Davidson’s, his pregnant cow, be-friending Russians, his trip to the Russian embassy in Paris, and of course, the cheese business.Jay also shares quite a few stories about his struggles of learning the language, how to find just about anything (in 1996).
Quotes from the show:”It was like Mars!””You go into some basement and there’s a bunch of toys.””Russia has changed more than any other country I’ve ever been to.””Why do these people go to work?””How to survive in an economy where there’s nothing left? That could be a lesson.”
