Talking Rush Creek Reserve with Andy Hatch – The Heavy Table

Another feature on this season’s Rush Creek Reserve. My #1 Cheese in our 31 Cheeses in 31 Days Celebration!

Andy Hatch, Cheesemaker: “My parents didn’t milk cows or make cheese. But I wanted to farm and a way to get into agriculture. I started working for a corn breeder at the Michael Fields Ag Institute just south of Milwaukee and thought I would go into a career into ag research. I grew bored with that job and was ready to quit, but this corn breeder had married a Norwegian woman from a cheesemaking family in Norway.”

Becca Dilley Photography

“The corn breeder’s elderly father died in Norway right when I was ready to leave, so they sent me over to Norway to help out this little Norwegian woman — his mother-in-law — on her goat dairy, way up on the side of a fjord. So I first learned how to make cheese from this little old lady named Uni in Norway and just stumbled into it that way.”

Salutation Recipes

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.
