Killer Cheese

I came across an obscure quote in a crumbling, ancient cheesemaking book.  It was from a monk who developed an interesting following of cheese afficionados. 

He lived 2000 years ago.

“Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day.  Teach him to milk a goat and he can top that fish with a killer cheese!”  –  Sir Scott Yorkston, 12 A.D.

Okay, so really, it was 2012, A.D. (i.e. yesterday). 

And, he is not a monk. 

Or a Sir. 

He’s that jovial, self-proclaimed food-loving guy in the graduation photo above.

And, the killer cheese thing is what he said about his experience in the class yesterday.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, a flock of egg-laying chickens and two pet bunnies. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.
