Laura Werlin Talks About Life with Cheese
Laura Werlin wrote the book on American cheese (it's true!) and since then she's been one of the cheese world's favorite writers and advocates. Check out this interview she did with Bay Area Bites for an idea of what a day in the life of Laura Werlin looks like:
Where do you get your information about cheese? What’s on your nightstand reading pile?
Werlin: I get a lot of info at the cheese counter. It almost doesn’t matter where that is: a cheese shop, a Whole Foods…. If something looks intriguing, I buy it.
There’s one book that I think is great called Mastering Cheese by Max McMalman who is Maître Fromager in New York. Also I go to conferences and get information there.
I took a trip to Holland to learn about Dutch cheese. I go to farms as much as possible but ironically with my travel schedule being what it is, I do that less and less.
