The Studd family joke is that their veins run with brie instead of blood, so it's no great surprise that siblings Ellie and Sam Studd share their father's passion for cheese. Ellie and Sam spent childhood family holidays visiting artisan producers in Europe and snacking on rare mountain cheeses and cave-ripened blues. Back home in Australia, their school lunches often contained cheeses of the stinky variety and the siblings had to explain to their friends why their dad was known as the 'Roquefort Rebel'.
Over the last decade, Ellie and Sam have travelled the world, working with celebrated mongers and makers, and learning to make, mature and sell cheese. They are members of the International Guilde Des Fromagers and are ACS Certified Cheese Professionals. Ellie and Sam spend their time hand-picking artisan cheeses for the 'Selected by Will Studd' range and are passionate about education, working closely with cheesemongers and chefs, running masterclasses, events (MFWF in 2023) and contributing regular columns to food magazines, such as delicious.
