The Big Cheese | BU Today

BU Today features an alum and star of the Cooking Channel’s “Big Cheese” – Excerpt:

We have become a cheese nation. We eat more now than ever, a hefty 33 pounds a year, triple what we ate just 40 years ago. The United States has not only become the world’s biggest cheese producer, but now turns out prizewinning world-class rounds with poetic names like Humboldt Fog and Constant Bliss. Teetering stacks of brie, Gruyère, and Stilton tumble from burgeoning dairy sections at our groceries, even the local IGA. Restaurants not only list cheese courses, but your tablemates won’t snort if you order one.

So it was inevitable that, being Americans, we now have a TV show devoted to all-things cheese. The Big Cheese debuted last fall on the Cooking Channel, its host a curly-haired cheese evangelist with a gee-whiz love of coagulated dairy, Jason Sobocinski.

“I believe in cheese,” says Sobocinski (MET’07), sitting in the bar of his restaurant and cheese shop, Caseus Fromagerie Bistro, in his hometown of New Haven, Conn.

Ask Sobocinski about a cheese and he’ll tell you a story.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
