On a special episode of Cutting the Curd, Anne Saxelby and Sophie Slessinger chat with Jess Perrie of Beehive Cheese Company, who happens to be the first recipient of the Daphne Zepos Teaching Award, a scholarship started in honor of cheese professional Daphne Zepos, who passed away last year. Jess explains what it means to win the scholarship and how she discovered her passion for cheese. Hear about her cheese journey and various projects and learn more about everything from cheese education to Basquee style cheeses. Cutting the Curd is underwritten by The Dairy Farm Families of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
