 the-cheese-nun-5Not your average organic foodie, Mother Noella Marcellino makes cheese from scratch at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut.   As her fellow mother Telchide Hinckley puts it, in their practice of cheese-making, the sisters are always thinking two things: “How can we be as monastic as possible?” and “How can we be as professional as possible?” Mother Noella got interested in creating cheeses the old-fashioned way when she became a nun in the ‘70s.  She attained a PhD in microbiology and went on to study cheese making in France for three years.   Her dedicated and fascinating journey is chronicled in Cheese Nun.
