Sad news for the cheese community

Sad news for the cheese community: we have lost two giants. Dr. Pat Elliot and Fred Hull have each left holes in the tight knit world of cheese.

Dr. Elliot was a practicing medical doctor who got her first sheep in order to keep her border collie occupied. She rose to the top of the American artisan cheese movement. She made world quality sheep milk cheeses.

On a personal note, she was a great lady and a real character.

Fred Hull was a true cheese lover. I first met him when I took the Masters Cheese Class at the Artisanal Cheese Center in New York. You could be sure to see him at every cheese conference and event. He loved people and his enthusiasm was infectious. His energy and devotion to cheese helped all of us remember why we have dedicated ourselves to cheese. He will be missed.
