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&#39;ve spent (and continue to spend) a lot of time working with (and tasting) the cheeses on our cheese counter. You&#39;re right in thinking &quot;hands-on&quot; is the best way to go. If I were you, I&#39;d get a job or internship at a cheese shop. Best of luck!Sarah Hikenhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17302471137642687305noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6109362693796904305.post-58141715320890581572010-03-27T11:18:59.354-07:002010-03-27T11:18:59.354-07:00A big thank-you to Noah for taking the time to cha...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.<br /><br />Thanks Noah!<br /><br />Traci Bue<br />Eureka, Catracihttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04393431835307282684noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6109362693796904305.post-60013357159522352232010-03-27T11:10:10.931-07:002010-03-27T11:10:10.931-07:00Sarah, I enjoy your blog, which I stumbled across...Sarah,<br /><br />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&#39;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&#39;s at.<br />I&#39;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?<br />Ultimately, I&#39;d like to write, educate, talk, indulge in cheese and the possibility of owning my own small cheese shop. I&#39;d appreciate any guidance you can offer this novice cheese geek.<br />Thanks!

As for the origin of Pecorino Sardo Gran Cru, according to the cheesemaker, it&#39;s &quot;produced in Sassari, an area of Sardinia famous for its pecorino&quot; so it does sound like they&#39;re referring to a region rather than a town.Sarah Hikenhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17302471137642687305noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6109362693796904305.post-68480738663060217192009-09-14T08:46:45.890-07:002009-09-14T08:46:45.890-07:00What is EVOO? hello my name is lidia and I am frie...What is EVOO? hello my name is lidia and I am friend to Elyse Dashew; I am also from Sassari and I believe the Gran Cru is made in the province of Sassari, not in Sassari itself.<br />Maybe I am wrong...Let me knowAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6109362693796904305.post-26128633444975702722009-07-30T20:13:38.670-07:002009-07-30T20:13:38.670-07:00That was a fun trip!
