America’s cheese renaissance

Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Stefanie Angstadt, Sue Miller, Tenaya Darlington

The Philadelphia region is experiencing a cheese renaissance. The farm-to-table food movement has sparked a surge in artisan cheese craftsmanship as well as an appetite among consumers. Today, Marty sits down with two local artisan cheesemakers and a cheese blogger to talk about the region’s ripening scene and the art and science of cheese making.  And she’ll sample a fresh fromage blanc, some blues and an English style bandaged wrapped cheddar. Our guests are  STEFANIE ANGSTADT, owner and cheese maker of Valley Milkhouse, SUE MILLER, owner and cheese maker of  Birchrun Hills Farm, and TENAYA DARLINGTON, who blogs as Madame Fromage and is the author of Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese.
