Marissa Mullen loves cheese plates so much that she quit her job with Stephen Colbert and dedicated herself to sharing her enthusiasm for all things fromage with the world. Her brand new book, That Cheese Plate Will Change Your Life, was just published and it shows how you can create a gorgeous cheese plate or board using Marissa’s Cheese By Numbers method. Marissa chats with host Kerry Diamond about her crazy journey, getting rejected by 20 cookbook publishers and dropped by her agent, and finding her place in the community of cheesemongers, cheesemakers, and cheese lovers. Tune in and maybe a cheese plate will save your life too.
Thank you to the wines of Rioja and Cypress Grove cheese for supporting this episode of Radio Cherry Bombe.
