Author Biography

The Studd family joke is that their veins run with brie instead of blood, so it's no surprise that siblings Ellie and Sam Studd share their father's passion for cheese. Ellie and Sam spent childhood holidays visiting artisan producers in Europe, snacking on rare mountain cheeses and cave-ripened blues. Ellie and Sam have traveled the world, working with celebrated mongers and makers; they are members of the International Guilde Des Fromagers and ACS Certified Cheese Professionals. Ellie and Sam spend their time hand-picking artisan cheeses for the 'Selected by Will Studd' range, working closely with cheesemongers and chefs, running masterclasses and contributing to food magazines, such as delicious.
