Seattle Times Feature: Meghan McKenna, cheesemaker


“IT’S EASY to envision Meghan McMahon McKenna as an Irish milkmaid born in an earlier century. Awake before dawn, she’d head to the barn to tend her goats, fill a pail with milk then trudge back to a chilly cottage to spread homemade cheese on brown bread. For her, paradise might be a soak in a steaming tub.

The contemporary Meghan McKenna has a much better gig.

A longtime cheesemonger at Metropolitan Market, she’s now cheesemaker at Mountain Lodge Farm, a new farmstead creamery near Eatonville in Pierce County.

Here in the foothills of Mount Rainier, she lives on the Nisqually River Forest Reserve in a spacious farmhouse whose lab-like cheesemaking room stands just off her kitchen.”

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.
