Meet Your Experts

Dr. Douglas Baldwin wrote Sous Vide for the Home Cook, one of the first sous vide cookbooks, while getting a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. In his cookbook and web guide, he uses math and science to explain the “whys” and not just the “hows” of cooking meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables with sous vide.





Bill Courtney is the chef/owner of Cheese-ology Macaroni & Cheese, located in the University City Loop, just west of the city of St. Louis, Missouri. Following completion of his undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of Missouri – Columbia, Bill worked a short time as a Q.C. Chemist for ConvaTec. A shift in interest eventually took Bill to the Genome Institute at Washington University, where he spent 9 years working with the leading genetic and genomic research scientists in the United States. In a radical move, Bill struck out on his own to open Cheese-ology, the culmination of years of a self-described “un-natural obsession” with Macaroni & Cheese. Open since June 2010, Cheese-ology Macaroni & Cheese features over 15 varieties of Macaroni & Cheese to satisfy any Mac & Cheese craving.
