Katie Quinn, sometimes known as qkatie to her millions of follows, has written a new book that was over 3.5 years in the making: “Cheese, Wine and Bread: Discovering the Magic of Fermentation in England, Italy and France.”

She studied the role of fermentation in the trio of staples of life: cheese, wine and bread as she worked in and studied all three industries in three different countries.

The book is a combination of personal stories, personality profiles of people she encountered and recipes. Mix in some scientific facts about fermentation and you have a book that is delightful but difficult to characterize.

It is part memoir and part travelogue, with huge doses of riveting storytelling and amazing photographs and illustrations.

Quinn also told WOUB’s Spectrum podcast about her rise from small town girl in Athens, Ohio to being a page at NBC in New York City and how that experience allowed her to learn from some of America’s greatest food personalities.

She talked about her rise in New York broadcasting but then her shift to attend the Le Cordon Bleu in Paris to become a chef.

Quin also tells us the story behind her “QKatie” YouTube channel with over 50,000 subscribers and her current life in Italy.

She also has a podcast called “Keep It Quirky,” her catchphrase for not being mundane or boring and she has a new podcast collaboration on the horizon
