I would like to see a glassblower doing something interesting with cheese, please.

Cheese bubbles? Is this something you saw in Wisconsin?

I could probably blow something with a can of aerosol cheese but I'm not going to.

Guys the request was perfectly clear.

When I cook just cheese in the pan, it makes a layer of browned cheese that is malleable for a few seconds when I remove it from the pan.

So I figure there has to be at least one video of a glassblower doing something with cheese! I know blowing sugar is a thing.

I think it's a good question. Unfortunately the cheese making problems known as "early blowing" and "late blowing" make this hard to search for. But if you want some science and history on that — wow there is some good stuff available.

Galalith, made from casein (“Casein is the main protein of milk, especially in coagulated form as in cheese. The name comes from the Latin caseus : Cheese) looks a lot like glass.

Reminder: Emphasis on glassblowers doing interesting things with cheese, please.

This guy is a chef, but the mozarella balloons look like glass (you tube)
