Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Steve Ehlers is a knowledgeable and highly respected cheese man, and is also the second- generation owner of Larry's Brown Deer Market in Milwaukee, an unassuming store that happens to have -- in a state renowned for its cheeses -- one of the best cheese selections in the country. His co-author, Jeanette Hurt, is also a cheese connoisseur as well as an award-winning writer. Together, they have penned a very readable and informative reference book that should be a welcome addition to any serious cheese library. A new cheese book is always a good thing, especially one that is so up- to-date and so celebratory of American artisanal cheeses. The book amply covers the basics -- how cheese is made, the types of milk used, a history of cheesemaking and descriptions of the principal types of cheese -- and does it better than most."
-James Mellgren
