This week on Cutting the Curd, host Diane Stemple is joined in the studio by cheesemonger and author Elena Santogade. Elena talks about her experience being one of the contributing authors of The Oxford Companion to Cheese, which is perhaps one of the most comprehensive books ever written about cheese. The book includes a great variety of cheese-related topics such as animal species, biographies, cheese families, process and technique, chemistry, equipment and tools, pairings and cuisines, and many more.
