Ruth DeCoster visits with Sarah Spring – nice video of Sarah making her cheese and talking about the ups and downs of being a small artisan maker.

Sarah Spring, cheese maker and owner of Spring Day Creamery in Durham, had just unpacked her wares at her first winter market in Lewiston. I left quite happily — a new customer with marinated cheese curds and a small tub of garlic/herb fromage blanc in tow.

Spring is a retired school teacher who began making batches of cheese in 2005 for her own use — to share with family and friends. In 2008, she became licensed and inspected by the Maine Department of Agriculture and in the years since has built up a loyal following of customers at several farmers markets.

Her appreciation of fresh cheese started during the 15 years she lived and worked in France. She lived in a small village in the Brie region, she said. “You never saw a table that didn’t have at least seven cheeses on it!”

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.
