Carlos Yescas, Founder, Lactography, Mexico City Bio
My professional life started as a cheesemonger in Ireland working for Sheridan’s Cheesemongers. I had already been involved in cheese before this, taking classes in Boston, reading about cheese, and even visiting cheesemaking plants in Mexico. But I was doing it as a hobby, to learn, and enjoy. It was in Ireland that I figured out that this was a legitimate trade and started to take seriously the craft of cheesemaking and mongering.
In 2009, I founded Lactography, a small distribution company in Mexico, which specializes in artisanal Mexican cheeses. Since May 2014, we also have a retail location in Mexico City. I go by cheesemonger, or rather the same title in Spanish: “quesero.”
My thanks to everyone participating in my 2015 Virtual Q&A with Cheese Professionals. I hope all of you, my loyal readers, are enjoying this as much as I am…
Interviews will continue throughout 2015… sometimes, they will be “stand-alone” and sometimes they will be presented as round-table discussions with several Cheese Professionals answering the same question. Those participating includeCheesemakers, ACS CCPs™, Cheesemongers and Cheese Professionals and Experts who contribute to this Wonderful World we call “Cheese”.
