"The best way to learn about cheese is to put it in your mouth!"

--Max McCalman on Cutting the Curd

"Most of the talented young cheesemongers I know are also in a band, or involved in the art world somehow. Then there comes a time when they are no longer a drummer in a band, and have to think of more realistic alternatives to feed themselves. The Certified Cheese Professional™ Exam personifies that moment."

--Daphne Zepos on Cutting the Curd
