This week on Cutting the Curd, Diane Stemple talks with Gianaclis Caldwell about her new book, The Small-Scale Dairy. Tune into this program to hear how writing this book reminded Gianaclis of the importance of food advocacy. Why is Gianaclis so inspired by the DIY spirit? Learn how some of the FDA’s proposed aging regulations could hurt some cheesemakers, and why artisan producers should define their own good manufacturing practices. Hear more about the farmstead cheesemaker short course that Gianaclis hosts, and how she analyzes milk for taste and food safety purposes! This program has been sponsored by White Oak Pastures. Music by The Hollows.



“It’s empowering to think, ‘If someone else can do something, than I can probably learn to do that thing, too.'” [3:45]

“It’s important to be informed… We shouldn’t look at food like it’s going to be around all of the time; food is not static.” [12:40]

“Most of us cheesemakers couldn’t afford our own cheese!” [27:15]
