This week, Sue and Stef chat about the connection between the hospitality world and cheesemaking, then dig into an interview with our good friend Vito Forte, cheesemaker of Meadow Creek Dairy in Galax, Virginia! Vito made the transition from bar owner in north Jersey to fermentation nerd and home cheesemaker to full-fledged professional, and now he’s making award-winning cheeses at Meadow Creek. Sue and Stef caught up with him at the Cheesemakers’ Resource Conference in Lancaster County back in February over Pennsylvania Dutch treats like ham balls and potato cakes. Listen in and follow Vito on Instagram @vitofermente.
