The Summer of a Thousand Cheeses is based on years of research on the phenomenal world of the new American cheese. Readers learn all about how cheese is made, why there are so many different kinds, and how a growing number of entrepreneurial cheesemakers are successfully bucking the trends that have been homogenizing and industrializing so many of our foods. In addition to their research, the authors visited factories and farms, interviewed cheesemakers, attended festivals, participated in professional conferences, and even learned to make their own cheeses. The result is tour of the world of cheese, taking the reader from the farm to the factory, and increasingly, back to the farm again.
