Hi! I'm Katie Quinn. I'm a fermentation expert. Let's talk about CHEESE, WINE and BREAD. Last month, I published my book "Cheese, Wine and Bread: Discovering the Magic of Fermentation in England, Italy, and France." AMA.
Hi, Reddit! Katie Quinn here. I spent the last 3.5 years working as a cheesemonger in London and making goat cheese in Somerset, England. I also traveled up and down the length of Italy working wine harvests and finding the latest and greatest in small-scale natural winemakers. Oh, and I also apprenticed at some of the best bakeries/boulangeries across Paris, Brittany and Marseille. I documented it all for my latest book, an ode to the "holy trinity of fermentation" across Europe.
I'm here to answer any questions about these amazing foods, share some of the recipes from the book (Cheddar Brownies, anyone? Red Wine Spaghetti? YEP.) Also in the spirit of "anything" we could talk about moving to Italy in the pandemic to get my dual citizenship (and having two cars stolen in a month), the life of a YouTuber or how I manage to do live TV cooking segments in the USA from our bare-bones Italian rental apartment. Could also talk about what life was like as an NBC page 10 years ago in a past life... It's gonna be fun!

UPDATE: OK, y'all. I'm in Italy so I need to go to bed. This has been such an awesome experience. I've definitely been bit by the reddit bug. I'll check back in the a.m. and we can keep going.
