Mike Geno is Attending the ACS Conference
Maybe you remember this mug? Maybe you’ve seen lush portraits of cheese gracing the pages of Culture Magazine or the New York Times? This is Mike Geno, a cheese painter in my neighborhood who has taken the world by storm. In the next few months, you’ll read about him in Cooking Light and Esquire (the Spanish version), but before that, you can meet him next week in Raleigh, North Carolina at the American Cheese Society Conference 2013.
Mike has been commissioned to paint the top three showstoppers in the ACS Competition. He’ll also be selling prints on the floor of the trade room. For a preview of his work, check out Mike’s website. If you want a good podcast for the plane, download his recent interview on Heritage Radio’s The Food Seen. You can hear him discuss his love of bacon, his background as a meat cutter turned food artist, and the inspiration behind his first cheese painting
