Jeanne Rodier

2011 Official Conference Cheesemonger

A passionate gastronome and avid cheeselover, Jeanne Rodier worked as a professional chemical engineer (Université de Sherbrooke, 1999) until 2002.

Looking to further her knowledge about all things related to cheese, she completed a “Certificat de Spécialisation en Fromagerie Internationale” in 2003 at the ENILBIO in Poligny, France. As part of this certificate, an internship at the “Coopérative laitière d’Isigny Ste-Mère” produced a memoire about Mimolette fabrication.

While working as a cheesemonger, she perfected her training by attending a sensorial evaluation class offered by the “Société des fromages du Québec” in 2005 and by participating in the cheese tasting club of the SFQ (2006, 2007).

Employed at Yannick Fromagerie since 2007, Jeanne  actively participates in developing the Québec cheese community by working with both consumers and producers.

Since June 2009, Jeanne has participated as a member of the jury at the Selection Caseus, Québec Fine Cheese Competition (Sélection Caseus, le concours des fromages fins du Québec).
