The Cheese Nun

Mother Noella Marcellino, a Benedictine nun from the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut, loves cheese. A college dropout when she entered the convent, Mother Noella went on to earn a bachelor's degree, a master's degree and then a doctorate in microbiology at the University of Connecticut. A Fulbright scholarship took her to France to study the biodiversity of raw-milk cheese fungi. She is the champion of France's famous raw-milk cheeses, helping to preserve the methods and microorganisms important in cheese-making. Read more about the Cheese Nun here.

The Cheese Nun DVD is available at the Vancouver Public Library.
