Arizona Food Makers: Women create artisan cheese, butter

“When Denise Diederich and Sheri Doramus talk about their cheese and butter, they sound more like poets than artisan food makers.

“The cheese is so smooth it wiggles between your taste buds and just hangs out,” Diederich said of their mascarpone.

“We make the food we love — nothing but real food. We serve us on a plate,” Doramus said of their seven cheeses, 13 butters and five tapenades.

For nearly eight years, the owners of Rainbow Valley Heritage Foods in Maricopa have churned passion, milk, cream, herbs and olives into a small but notable artisan business.

Today the life and business partners sell their handcrafted, all-natural cheeses, butters and tapenades at three Valley shops and to chefs at 10 Valley restaurants including the Tuck Shop, Quiessence, House at Secret Garden and the Cafe at Musical Instrument Museum, all in Phoenix; as well as Essence Bakery Cafe in Tempe.”

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.
