Angela Miller At Northshire Bookstore, April 30th 7 pm

       About 9 years ago Angela Miller came into my lampshade shop in Pawlet Village. She and her husband Russell Glover had just bought a farm in West Pawlet. She told me that she was a literary agent ( I had no clue what a literary agent was.... famous last words) and that she represented many chefs. That was cool as my husband went to The Culinary Institute of America and we were sort of foodies.
         Angela mentioned to me that she thought it would be fun to make cheese since now they had this big farm. I love people that actually DO what they say and somehow I felt that Angela would follow through with her dream. Sure enough, Russell and Angela have made incredible cheeses and resurrected the farm and cheese making operation.

Come hear Angela's story at the Northshire Book Store, Friday April 30th, Friday 7pm, Manchester, Vermont. Quoted from the Northshire's website:
Local Vermont author and cheesemaker Angela Miller will present her new memoir Hay Fever: How Chasing a Dream on a Vermont Farm Changed My Life. Miller’s new book tells the inspiring, informative, and funny story about changing your life when you're already more than halfway through it. After Miller’s marriage became strained, her job too stressful, and the social whirl on Shelter Island unsatisfying, she and her husband decided to buy Consider Bardwell Farm in Vermont and become cheesemakers (all while maintaining their New York jobs and lives). But what started as a part time “project” turned into a full-blown obsession and culinary passion that not only changed their lives forever, but also resulted in some of America’s best cheeses, prestigious awards, and media fame. Hay Fever is an inspiring and entertaining memoir that will whet the appetite of food lovers and would-be farmers from coast to coast, and includes recipes from the author and top food personalities like Mark Bittman and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
Angela Miller is a prominent literary agent in New York City. Miller and her farm have been written up in the Boston Globe, the New York Times, the Daily News, Travel and Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler, Martha Stewart Living, and many other national publications. Consider Bardwell cheeses are featured on the menus of some of the finest restaurants in the country, including The French Laundry, Per Se, Daniel, and Jean Georges.

Hope you will put this on the calendar. We are all lucky to have this yummy cheese so close to home as well as wonderful, dear friends.  Northshire Bookstore, April 30th, 7 pm.  Maybe she'll bring some cheese!
