About me

Industry Technology
Location Chester, Vermont, United States
Hi, I'm Sue!

Left the city and moved to Vermont fifteen years ago. I have a house, a husband, and 20 acres but no mule. I'm learning the lessons that Vermont has to teach: self-reliance, patience, and flexibility. Technologist by day, and writer, photographer, cheesemaker, and serious cook by night. In Vermont, I'm finally using the training I've had: cooking from Madeleine Kamman, Cheesemaking from Jim Wallace in Shelburne Falls, Ivan Larcher in Auvergne, and Academie Mons in Lyon and environs. I'm also interested in gardening from my years on the North Shore, and am now growing upwards of a thousand hybrid daylilies.. I've paid my dues and am living in paradise. Till the power goes out.
Interests Dedicated to creating great things to eat, and to making life even better here in Vermont.
