Jamie Tomassetti is a web designer turned cheesemonger. She opened Spread Cheese Co. in downtown Middletown with her sister Lindsey in 2019. Their mission was and remains to share the flavors and stories of artisan cheese with their community. Jamie’s days always begin with a deep contemplation on “what’s for dinner?” She defines herself as a foodie and frequently experiments with curious pairings. When Jamie’s not behind the counter at Spread, she can be found burning off cheese-related calories on the Peloton or enjoying the simplicity of country living at her home in Hadlyme,CT.

Case of the Bleus by Korina Moss

What in the bleu blazes is happening in Yarrow Glen now?

Cheesemongers from across the Northwest have come to the Sonoma Valley for the Northwest Cheese Invitational. As owner of the local cheese shop, Curds & Whey, Willa Bauer loves it. The event showcases custom cheese creations, and it’s the perfect time to gather with old colleagues to honor her former boss, the late and grate cheese legend, Max Dumas. He was famous for journeying into the wild bleu yonder to where he aged his award-winning custom Church Bleu. Only Max knew the recipe and location to his beloved cheese, and many are eager to have these revealed at his will reading.

But instead of naming someone to inherit his cheese and its secrets, Max stuns everyone with one cryptic clue. When a fellow cheesemonger dies under mysterious circumstances––the woman they all thought would get the secrets to Max's prized possession––everyone falls under suspicion. Willa adores Church Bleu as much as the next cheese connoisseur, but it’s not to die for. Is a killer trying to get away with murder...and the cheese?
