  1. Sarah,

    I enjoy your blog, which I stumbled across in my exploration of all things cheese. I am a lover of cheese and a cheese snob wannabe. My quandary is that I'm not sure of the best route for a cheese rookie to begin. There is a wealth of info on the web regarding cheese education, but ultimately hands-on is where it's at.
    I've considered trying to land a job at the best cheese shop I can find, but would a farm internship, cheese courses better pave my way?
    Ultimately, I'd like to write, educate, talk, indulge in cheese and the possibility of owning my own small cheese shop. I'd appreciate any guidance you can offer this novice cheese geek.
    Thanks! Traci

  2. A big thank-you to Noah for taking the time to chat with this cheese novice about the best avenues for becoming a cheese expert.

    Thanks Noah!

  3. Hi Traci! Sorry I wasn't at the store when you dropped by, but I was at the CA Artisan Cheese Festival - which was fabulous! For my cheese education, I read, attended classes at the Cheese School of SF, and pestered a couple of my mentors with thousands of questions. But most importantly, I've spent (and continue to spend) a lot of time working with (and tasting) the cheeses on our cheese counter. You're right in thinking "hands-on" is the best way to go. If I were you, I'd get a job or internship at a cheese shop. Best of luck!
