Back in 2005, Tenaya Darlington stumbled into Di Bruno Bros. cheese store in search of sharp Cheddar. What she found behind the counter of Philadephia’s largest cheese house changed the way she viewed dairy forever. She met a hairy band of cheesemongers who were keen to talk about raw milk and lactic fermentation the way some people talk about baseball. Within a few weeks, she committed myself to tasting every cheese in the store and blogging about it.
Over five years, she scribbled notes, played with pairings, and nibbled her way through the entire stock — first as a customer, then as the store’s resident blogger. this collaboration finally turned into a book project.
This book is one man’s journey to find out what a familiar food can tell us about ourselves. Cheddar may be appreciated in almost all American homes, but the advocates of the traditional wheel versus the processed slice often have very different ideas about food.
The author Gordon Edgar is taking readers on a tour through the world of cheddar. For more than fifteen years he has worked as an iconoclastic cheesemonger in San Francisco. His fresh perspectives on such a seemingly common topic are thought-provoking and entertaining.
“Finally, the go-to source for all things cheese in one single, sensational volume. Every cheesemonger in America will want this in their library.” Rob Kaufelt, president of Murray’s Cheese
