Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Atlas of American Artisan Cheese is the first reference book of its kind and a must-have for even the most casual foodie library. Jeffrey P. Roberts lavishes loving attention on the growing local food and farmstead movement in what is fast becoming a national trend. This fully illustrated encyclopedia of contemporary artisan cheeses and cheesemakers will not only be a mainstay in any cookery and cuisine library—guiding consumers, retailers, restaurateurs, and food professionals to the full breadth and unparalleled quality of American artisan foods—it will be the source of many a fabulous food adventure. Organized by region and state, the Atlas highlights more than 350 of the best small-scale cheeses produced from cow, sheep, and goat milk in the United States today. It provides the most complete overview of what’s to be had nationwide—shippable, attainable, delectable. Each entry describes a cheesemaker, its products, availability, location, and even details on the cheesemaking processes. The Atlas of American Artisan Cheese captures America’s local genius for artisan cheese: its capacity for adaptation, experimentation, and innovation, while following old-world artisanship. It is destined to become a classic resource and reference.

Book News Annotation:

Roberts presents an atlas of American artisan cheese that features 345 producers organized by region, then alphabetically by state. Profiles include the varieties of cheese produced, aging information, contact information, and locations where the producers' cheeses are available. Profiles also include vignettes of the cheese makers themselves. These are typically entertaining stories of how they became involved in handmade cheeses, details of their cheese-making process, and how their craft has evolved. The book includes numerous color photos. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
