What would you do if you couldn’t fail? Fall City’s Julie Steil makes cheese

0313-WIBJulieSteilcourtesy2-w-

Success is less about having the right answers than it is about asking the right questions. Doubters, just take a look at Julie Steil.

She started filming her own television show this spring. The Fall City woman wholesales most of her specialty cheeses to chefs in Seattle-area restaurants, and opens a retail shop on weekends. She sells out anyway, since she teaches cheese-making and students clear the shelves of, among other things, cheese-making supplies and her home-made cheesecake.

Plus, it’s not easy to find an open time slot in one of her classes, anyway.

Now in her second career—her third if you include raising a family—Steil is a success by nearly any definition you care to use.

Ask her to define success, though, and you’re more likely to get a question, than an answer.

“What would you do if you could not fail?” she asks. The question hangs as artwork in her Fall City home, and she says, “it’s what I live by.”

  1. A lot of people need to be asking themselves that question.

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.
