The Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin - Book


The Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin is a fascinating book, beautifully photographed by Becca Dilley and engagingly written by James Norton. This book introduces hardworking, resourceful men and women who represent an artisanal craft that has roots in Europe but has been a Wisconsin tradition since the 1850s. Wisconsin produces more than six hundred varieties of cheese, from massive wheels of cheddar and swiss to bricks of brick and limburger to such specialties as crescenza-stracchino and juustoleipa. These masters combine tradition, technology, artistry, and years of dedicated learning?in a profession that depends on fickle, living ingredients?to create the rich tastes and beautiful presentation of their skillfully crafted products.

James Norton and Becca Dilley interviewed these dairy artisans, listened to their stories, tasted their cheeses, and explored the plants where they work. They offer here profiles of forty-three active Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin, as well as a glossary of cheesemaking terms, suggestions of operations that welcome visitors for tours, tasting notes and suggested food pairings, and tasty nuggets (shall we say curds?) of information on everything to do with cheese. Meet the Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin! Published by University of Wisconsin Press. Paperback, 232 pages, 8 x 10 in., 62 b/w and 52 color photos, 5 maps.
