Thalassa Skinner is co-founder of the general consumer cheese magazine Culture, now in its 10th year. She caught the cheese bug 20+ years ago at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, MA—as well as in restaurant kitchens across Boston.
In 2000, she settled in the Napa Valley, where she started a cheese program at Tra Vigne’s wine bar, managed the St. Helena Farmers Market, opened the Oxbow Cheese Merchant and co-authored Cheese For Dummies (John Wiley & Sons, May 2012).
Lassa is passionate about spreading the love of cheese, judging in competitions and teaching across the US and overseas as well as partnering with chefs, wineries, breweries, and all things food-centric.
