About me

Industry Technology
Location Chester, Vermont, United States
Hi, I'm Sue!

Left the city and moved to Vermont fifteen years ago. I'm learning the lessons that Vermont has to offer: self-reliance, patience, and flexibility. As a technologist, writer, photographer, cheesemaker, baker and serious cook, living in Vermont allows me to use the things I've learned: cooking and baking from Madeleine Kamman, King Arthur Flour and others, Cheesemaking from Jim Wallace, Ivan Larcher in Auvergne, and Academie Mons in Lyon. I'm also interested in gardening from my years on the North Shore, and am now growing upwards of a thousand hybrid daylilies.. I've paid my dues and am living in paradise. Till the power goes out.
Interests Dedicated to creating great things to eat, and to making life even better here in Vermont.
