My friend Elodie shares my passion for food. She is the one that got me hooked to making cheese.
Once in a while I will go to her house which is also her painting studio. We will make cheese and
she will paint me during the waiting time for the cheese. It is very therapeutic because it completely
carries me away from my precise and science world.
Elodie has a very impressive resume; she has several master’s, she works part time as a freelance
translator and a talented painter. To view samples of her painting, you can go to:

Bikram Yoga Hampden.

1 layer of vanilla cream.
2 egg whites
