aimie Casey has nothing but positive things to say about cheese, from its healthful qualities to its yummy taste. So it makes perfect sense that the trained chef and caterer founded the Palo Alto Cheese School last fall, offering monthly events at Hidden Villa that are more “club” than class. Her next event is a pairing of cheese and micro-brews. Casey calls herself a “cheesemonger” — somewhat like a fishmonger, only for cheese. After training at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, Casey went to work at a variety of restaurants. She quickly found the crazy hours and working on holidays not conducive to having a life. So she took a job at a tea shop/food retailer called Leonard’s 2001 in San Francisco. There she was exposed to cheese in a big way: Picture six doors fronting refrigerated storage compartments, each holding 50 different cheeses. Her job was to get to know each cheese, so she could explain their complexities to customers. Her first taste was of Vella Dry Jack — she now has a cat named after the cheese — “and I realized there was more to cheese than being powdered white or orange, and more to life than Velveeta,” she said.

Ultimately she moved on to manage A.G. Ferrari Foods in Palo Alto, where she met her husband while selling him ... cheese. Today she runs J.C. Culinary, a small private catering outfit, and offers twice-monthly cheese tastings at The Milk Pail in Mountain View and cheese-and-wine events at J. Lohr in San Jose, as well as her monthly classes at Hidden Villa. â€œI really like cheese,â€? she said with understatement. Her personal favorite is a fresh goat cheese. â€œIt reminds me of cream cheese, but itâ€™s healthy,â€? she said, citing that itâ€™s lower in fat, cholesterol and calories than cow cheese, and is full of Omega-6 as well. â€œItâ€™s considered an almost perfect protein,â€? she said. Casey and her husband have traveled to London and Paris, where â€œwe ate our way in cheese.â€? They like to joke that when they were first dating he sure was fooled when he heard the cattle-ranch-raised Casey couldnâ€™t care less about Prada shoes. He didnâ€™t know about her cheese habit. Casey sees cheese tasting as a cultural experience: â€œYou find out a lot about people when you put food in front of them. If they like it or not, you always get some kind of Jaimie Casey, who runs the Palo Alto Cheese School, offers cheese classes at Hidden Villa and cheese tastings at The Milk Pail in Mountain View.
response.â€? In her January class, called â€œGoat Cheese Fun,â€? she offered six cheeses to sample, including Humboldt Fog from Cypress Grove, Calif. â€” the very cheese she sold to her husband-to-be. The cheeses were complemented by walnut bread, dried apricots, marinated fennel, roasted walnuts and three kinds of wine. At first her classes drew about 15 people, but this one sold out with 35 students. About half have come before. Itâ€™s possible to make cheese at home, Casey said, but a tad challenging. As she puts it, all it takes is a stovetop and part of a day. Creating a 1-pound log of goat cheese requires about 8 quarts of raw milk (not the pasteurized kind one finds in a supermarket), rennet or other enzymes, a strainer and a large pot. The tricky part is being very careful with the unpasteurized milk, she stressed. Those interested in getting started can go online and find cheese-making kits, she added. At her next class, Casey will cohost with Sayre Piotrkowski, a beer cicerone (thatâ€™s a certified expert) from the Monkâ€™s Kettle in San Francisco. The challenge will be to balance sweet, salty or sour qualities, â€œfinding a cheese that creates more complexityâ€? in the pairing with beers. She can see a chocolaty beer coupled with a light and tangy goat cheese, for example.
In future, Casey wants to earn her certificate in cheese-making. Then sheâ€™ll be geared up for what she hopes will be the next step at Hidden Villa, actually making some of the cheeses she talks about. But, that would require more than the two milking goats, sheep and cows that live there. Casey would like to see a proper aging facility, with a small refrigerator with a filtering system to control the bacteria. She can envision a nice local Gouda or a younger English cheese, but â€œthis takes time and money,â€? she said. â€œI have no doubt it will happen. Itâ€™s a matter of when.â€?

Positively Green Waste not: food conservation revisited by Iris Harrell
n our home I am proud to be the “leftover” queen. As the sous-chef, I am responsible for putting away the food we prepared but did not yet eat. We often cook a meal with twice the amount we will consume, so we purposely have leftovers to draw from for lunches or for dinner later in the week when we do not have time to properly prepare a good meal due to our busy schedules. With the aid of a microwave, voila! — a home-cooked meal re-appears on our dinner plates in minutes. I take great pride in having just the right amount of leftovers needed for a few good lunches during the week without having to resort to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, unless I am heading off to the golf course. For this approach to work out perfectly each week, our family has to be careful not to over or under purchase at the local markets. And if we don’t look at our calendars for the upcoming week — and I have three or four business lunches to attend — the leftover plan could be all for naught, meaning at the week’s end I would have to throw some wonderfully prepared home-cooked meals down the disposal. This pains me as I hear the “starving children” mantra from my now-deceased parents. As an adult, I know somewhere in the world, probably even close by, people are going hungry while I am disposing of carefully prepared, organic food because it sat in the refrigerator too long. Many of my friends don’t eat at home as much as we do and they certainly don’t cook as often, though they are good cooks. And not wishing to sound like I’m on a self-righteous rant, I should explain that having lived on the road for five years while in a traveling band long ago cured me from wanting to eat out on any regular basis. There is some kind of spiritual reward for me in sitting down at my own dinner table in my own home to eat a meal that was prepared in my own kitchen.
And the only way to truly know what is in the food you are eating is to buy locally and prepare as much of it yourself as you can. Most of us living in this area are so fortunate to have the opportunity to eat extremely well without consuming much of the food prepared at some corporate headquarters in the Midwest and shipped in gas-guzzling trucks halfway across the country. Talking about how and where food is grown and prepared can become a very hot political discussion quickly. If we don’t support the small local food producers for our own health and theirs, who will? Do we want to be eating more genetically modified food grown in places further and further away from where we live? The word “fresh” may soon lose its meaning in regards to food preparation. We have big issues to resolve around food production and distribution, not only as a local and national community, but as a global community as well. The human population is expected to increase from 6 billion to 9 billion by 2050. In a recent interview, Republican Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana asked the question, “Where are there acres on Earth to supply this amount of food?” The Christian Science Monitor just reported that the global food price index just reached a record high and further stated that in 200708 30 countries had riots because of dramatically rising food prices. Perhaps because of my growing up on a farm and watching my grandmother and parents lovingly and arduously prepare food for our family meals, nothing is more important to me than knowing when my next home-cooked meal is going to happen. So what can we do personally to “green” our choices around our own daily food purchases? Planning ahead for the family so there is time in the week to prepare and eat a homecooked meal together could become a new spiritual experience instead of an inconvenience. Buying food from local produce farmers could boost their sales enough to enable them to stay in the business of farming. Otherwise, our food in the not-so-distant future won’t be what we had in mind, because we were “consumed” with other matters that at the time seemed more important.
