Kurt Timmermeister

We interviewed the cheesemaker for our most fascinating singles story.
Posted November 01, 2012
First date idea: A cooking class at The Pantry at Delancey. Take note: these popular sessions sell out far in advance.

Age: 50

Occupation: farmer, author, maker of Dinah's Cheese

Neighborhood: Vashon Island

Orientation: Gay

Pets: Byron and Daisy, both dogs. I also have a herd of Jersey cows, but I wouldn’t really call them pets.

Grew up in: Seattle

Personal passion: I love great food; both growing and raising tasty fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy.  

Would spend a million dollars on: A small apartment in Manhattan. OK, a million dollars would only buy a very small apartment, but having a place to crash in the city would be a great way to spend the cash.  

Best place to eat a meal solo in Seattle: I have three options: Café Presse, Madison Park Conservatory and Spud Fish and Chips shop on Alki. It is on the way to the Vashon ferry dock, and I have been going there for fish and chips since I was a kid. Thankfully, I never run into anyone I know while enjoying a root beer milk shake and a large basket of fried foods.

Ideal mate: I enjoy the company of men who are terribly bright and passionate. And I wouldn’t complain if that bright, passionate man had a sexy, hairy chest as well.
