Bohemian Creamery: An Interview with Lisa Gottreich
Kirstin Jackson is kicking off her new series on cheese experts in an interview with Lisa Gottreich, goat-lover and cheese extrodinaire at the California-based Bohemian Creamery. Lisa talks about her inspiration, her typical work day, and her unadulterated passion for all things goat.
What would you say is the most exciting cheese that you make, for you? For some, it might be your fresh goat, bloomy-rinded Bodacious cheese- one of my favorite quotes of yours from the LA Times article I wrote that featured Bodacious was- “it’s modeled after a boob, though it’s not always the most thrilling boob, the mold is food grade, stainless steel.” For others it might be your Bo-Peep, a sheep-goat blend washed with Russian River’s Consecration beer. But I know you have a new one you’re working on too. What’s the first cheese you know you’ll be looking forward to making or tending most after coming back from your upcoming two-week writer’s retreat?
