Join us as we explore the world of food writing, YouTube stardom and fermentation with Katie Quinn ‘08, hosted by Dr. Howard Kleiman, Miami Professor Emeritus of Media and Communication.

About Cheese, Wine, and Bread: Discovering the Magic of Fermentation in England, Italy, and France.
Delicious staples of a great meal, bread, cheese, and wine develop their complex flavors through a process known as fermentation. Katie Quinn spent months as an apprentice with some of Europe’s most acclaimed experts to study the art and science of fermentation. Visiting grain fields, vineyards, and dairies, Katie brings the stories and science of these foods to the table, explains the process of each craft, and introduces the people behind them. Part artisanal survey, part travelogue, and part cookbook, featuring watercolor illustrations and gorgeous photographs,
Cheese, Wine, and Bread is an outstanding gastronomic tour for foodies, cooks, artisans, and armchair travelers alike.

Katie Quinn is a video creator, podcast host and cookbook author. She thinks there is a story to be told everywhere and she believes that food connects people. Every week she posts food and travel videos to her YouTube Channel, QKatie. Her slogan is “Keep It Quirky” because she thinks life, both in the kitchen and out of it, is more enjoyable if you don’t take yourself too seriously. You may have caught her on NBC's Today Show, as a contestant on the Food Network's 'Chopped' or as a judge on 'Beat Bobby Flay.' She attended Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Paris and is the author of “Cheese, Wine, and Bread,” published by HarperCollins William Morrow Imprint, and the “Avocados” cookbook, published by Short Stack Editions. She co-hosts the Food52 Podcast Network show "Either Side Eaters." Before starting the QKatie brand, she worked for NBC, Serious Eats, and as a VJ for NowThis News. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Theater from Miami University.
