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.
