Just about every cheese lover dreams about becoming a professional cheesemaker — but it takes real dedication to make that dream a reality. Matt Spiegler started out as a blogger in Brooklyn, exploring the world of artisan cheese and writing about it as he went on his website Cheese Notes. Soon, he was making cheese at home — and eventually, Matt quit his day job to intern and then work at one of the country’s most esteemed cheese houses, Jasper Hill Farm. Today, he’s the head cheesemaker at Churchtown Dairy, a biodynamic farm in New York’s Hudson Valley, only a few miles from where Matt grew up. Plus, we taste some delicious Churchtown cheeses!
