“How did you become Madame Fromage?

Madame Fromage evolved out of homesickness for Wisconsin. I moved from Madison to Philadelphia in 2005 to start a new job, and I didn’t know a soul. One day I passed by a cheese shop called Di Bruno Brothers, and I stopped in to pick up a wedge of (Wisconsin) Pleasant Ridge Reserve. The guys behind the counter were so excited I’d asked for that cheese, they offered me samples of half their stock. I left with a big bag of goodies and a determination to learn more about artisan cheese in general.

After that, the cheese counter turned into my corner bar. I stopped in every few days for a nibble and conversation, and eventually I began taking notes. The blog evolved as a way to record my tastings—the name was just a joke at first, but I grew to like it. It’s like a stage name, which is perfect since every cheese board is slightly theatrical, in my opinion—a place where dramatic pairings can shine.”

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.
