Culture is the ultimate publication for those who love cheese. Our bi-monthly magazine is devoted to delivering the most innovative, eye-opening stories about the world’s many cheeses and cheesemakers. Within each issue, you can travel to gorgeous cheese regions, meet passionate makers and mongers, discover one-of-a-kind recipes, and even learn how to make your own cheeses. Stunning photos, engaging narratives, and expert-guided editorial lineups make culture a resource for readers of any background.
Culture aims to nurture passion for great cheese through accurate, engaging storytelling that focuses on the people and places behind cheese.
Co-owners Lassa and Stephanie Skinner founded culture along with cheese expert Kate Arding in 2008. Stephanie, our publisher, was intrigued when Lassa, then a cheesemonger and now our retailer liaison, mentioned that there were no magazines filling the artisan cheese niche.
Madeline Upson brings her background in publishing and food service to her role as editorial assistant for culture. Her writing skills were honed for four years with a humanities degree that she will never use, but now she at least writes about cheese.
Working in print, digital and design, Shauna Epstein joins culture as production assistant. Shauna comes from a long list of food and lifestyle publications and is ready to devote all her time into what she loves most: cheese.
