Overview

In recent years the number of artisanal and farmstead cheesemakers in Vermont has exploded. These dedicated craftspeople make distinctive, high-quality cheeses from the milk of their own cows, sheep, and goats; age them in their own caves; and ship them to restaurants, gourmet food markets, and cheese lovers all over the world.
Henry Tewksbury, a cheese expert and a passionate devotee of handcrafted Vermont cheese, is your guide to the cheeses, their makers, and their stories. He gives a brief overview of the cheesemaking process, introduces us to the cheesemakers and their herds, and then describes dozens of varieties in delectable detail. He tells you where to go and when to visit to see the cheeses being made, and provides details on where Vermont cheeses can be purchased, both within and outside the state.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Henry Tewksbury, former film and television producer, now Vermont resident and manager of the cheese department of the Brattleboro Food Co-op, celebrates cheese makers in The Cheeses of Vermont: A Gourmet Guide to Vermont's Artisanal Cheese Makers. He provides a brief history of the art and craft of the process, highlighting various cheese makers and facilities. Cheese makers are organized by region, and cheeses by types for easy access, and "Henry the Cheeseman" provides an appendix on locating the makers (including directions), farmer's markets and a glossary of terms. Color and black-and-white photos and a map complete the production. (Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
