Beer and Cheese Don't Just Belong Together in Soup

Thomas Cizauskas

The Southeast Wisconsin Festival of Books runs Friday and Saturday in Waukesha. Eighty authors and presenters will be part of the event at UW-Waukesha.  And among them are a number of cookbook authors who will talk and demonstrate from the cookbook stage.

That includes a couple of frequent contributors to Lake Effect – beer writer Lucy Saunders and cheese writer Jeanette Hurt who are teaming up their expertise along with beer and cheese.

"We have nothing against wine, but one of the most interesting things I think is that beer and cheese have more of a similar chemical profile of aromatic compounds," says Hurt.

Writers Lucy Saunders and Jeanette Hurt will pair up for the first time on stage Saturday afternoon at 3:30 at the Southeast Wisconsin Festival of Books in Waukesha.
