Laura Werlin

Laura Werlin is one of the country’s foremost authorities on cheese. She is a James Beard award-winning author of six books on the subject and a sought-after speaker and spokesperson for consumer and trade organizations. She is also a popular presenter at food and wine festivals such as the Food & Wine Classic at Aspen, Pebble Beach Food & Wine, LA Food & Wine, and the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta among others, and she is often tapped by wineries to present cheese and wine pairings to consumers and trade alike. In addition, Laura is a corporate speaker and team-build leader. A self-styled “edu-tainer,” she possesses the rare ability to entertain while educating about almost anything related to cheese.

Laura has been featured on numerous television, radio and Internet video segments across the country and has also written for national magazines including Food & Wine.

When Laura isn’t eating or teaching about cheese, she can be found hiking in the mountains, or in a nod to her previous profession in the broadcast news industry, watching the news always with a little cheese and wine alongside.
