Jong-un milks France for cheese skills

Comment on this story

A cheese factory in eastern France may seem a world away from the bleak, oppressive regime of North Korea. But Kim Jong-un thinks he may have sniffed an opportunity to bring a touch of Gallic culture to his homeland.

Tired of his country’s bland attempts to produce a quality cheese, the despot ruler is sending a team of food experts to the French city of Besançon for a crash course in dairy production.

The three specialists are preparing to spend several months at the National Dairy Industry College.

Much of that will be dedicated to making one type of cheese – the dictator’s favourite Emmental.

This is reportedly Kim’s snack of choice, which he was thought to have taken a liking to while studying in Switzerland, it was reported by the BBC which cited the La Lettre A website. – DailyMail
