    Gotta love this book!!

    I LOVE this book. And even if you don't like cheese beyond the 'American singles' Kraft makes, I still want you to read this book.

    Bear in mind I grew up in a home where we made cheese, so it always seemed odd that everyone didn't come from homes who did this. But we also grew most of our own food, raised our own meat, as well as hunted and fished. And being from a French and Scottish background we loved a variety of cheeses. And to this day authentic high quality cheese with small sardines on crackers are the treat the kids in the family still ask for. .

    It whets the appetite of the reader. Encourages with a gentle nudge. Explains the history of cheese and the countries the various cheeses hail from, and why they are wonderful in so many eating situations, from homemade mac and cheese with a mix of three cheeses, to simply slicing off a nice piece of Gruyère and letting it melt in your mouth. The author does a superb job of explaining why we as Americans do ourselves a big favor when we make the effort to buy wonderful artisan cheeses from the small dairy men/women. And how environmentally sound this is, when we buy as close to home as possible. Another reason I love farmers markets here in Northern California. Also appreciated the author sharing with the reader how sales men/women lie and how he loved catching them in a lie.

    Shows he is a serious cheesemonger! And not just some person working behind the deli counter looking to simply make a sale.

    A must read if you like cheese and success stories

    A great story of finding your place in life and a great lesson on what all cheeses are about. A must for any serious cook or foodie.
