Sue's Facebook page

Epicurean Cooks - A place to discuss what's cooking on your stove tonight.

Murray's Cheese Shop - One of the great cheese shops in New York. Sue also gives classes here from time to time. Check Murray's class schedule for the latest update.

Central Bottle in Central Square, Cambridge - A welcome addition to the Cambridge food scene is Central Bottle. Brought to us by the team behind Kendall Square's Blue Room Grill, they've got a great selection of wines and beers, and a delightful selection of well-chosen artisan cheeses lovingly chosen and tended by Formaggio alum David Seaton.

Ecole Ritz Escoffier - Sue's alma mater. Get a virtual tour of the school and hotel. (Click on "Activities", then "Ritz Escoffier School.")

The Slow Food Movement - A must to join for all those committed to the biodiversity of foodstuffs, and those who believe that time really is the essence of good food!

The American Cheese Society - Amazing things are happening in the United States. Farmers across the country are turning to artisanal cheesemaking as a creative outlet and lucrative alternative to producing milk for liquid consumption. The US now makes cheeses that easily rival many classics worldwide. The American Cheese Society judges hundreds of cheeses each year (in 2003 there were some 618 entries) and reports the winners on their website.

Beehive Cheese Co. - Wonderful people. Wonderful cheese in Utah.

Liberty Height Fresh - A filling station converted into a gourmet food store. Steve Rosenberg's store is a must-visit in Salt Lake City.

New York Cheese Guild - New York State has some great cheesemakers, many of whom Sue knows personally through her involvement in the New York State Artisanal and Farmstead Cheesemaker's Guild. Visit the site, then try the cheeses! Many are available only at local farmstands, but they are worth searching out.
Click here for the Guild press kit.

Local Wine Events.com - Great source for local NYC tastings.

Epicurious - At least 10 years worth of recipes from Bon Apetit and Gourment - over 10,000 recipes!

Fromages.com - Sue's favorite source for French cheeses. Unfortunately, due to severe improt restrictions they have currently suspended cheese imports to the United States. However the site is full of great information about French cheese and remains an excellent resource.

Quesos.com - Sue's source for Spanish cheeses. Direct from Spain. (Click on the British flag for the site in English)

Formaggio's Kitchen - Sue's current source for Italian cheeses. Located in Boston, Ihsan Gurdal has built one of the only caves d'affinage (cheese aging cellars) in the US. Great quality - call to check availability of specific cheeses, as web list not always updated.

Penzeys Spices - Sue's source for spices. Huge selection. Great ideas, easy to purchase on the Internet.

Chef Simon - In French. A fabulous website for technical how-to's from classically trained chef and food scientist Bertrand Simon. Great step-by-step photos of classic and basic preparations.
