When most people think of pairing cheese with something, wine seems like the obvious choice. Janet Fletcher has other ideas. In her newest book, Fletcher explores the courtship between craft beers and artisan cheeses. We, at The Cupboard, are lucky enough to have this talented self employed food writer visiting us this Saturday.
After studying at the Culinary Institute of America and working in kitchens for several years, Janet found her passion for food writing in her mid-twenties. Since then she has written several books on cheese and produce. She has also written for the San Francisco Chronicle and various specialty food magazines. This is her first book to touch on the unique pairing of beer and cheese. What better city for her to visit than Fort Collins, and its six micro breweries? Janet is currently finishing her next book, which delves into sustainability in the California wine industry.
When asked, “What is the most used tool in your cupboard?” Janet said her stainless steel bench scraper and her v-slicer.
We are looking forward to hosting Mrs. Fletcher this Saturday, August 31st from 1-3pm. Joining her will be our local cheese shop, The Welsh Rabbit.
