The Guardian has just published an article outlining one of many compelling stories chartered in Bronwen and Francis Percival’s new book on the cheese industry called Reinventing The Wheel. The authors are currently on tour promoting the book at various book AND cheese stores across America.
I have read the book and would highly recommend it to anyone who cares about the future of Good Cheese in an era of increasing focus on food safety. The Percivals traveled extensively through Europe, Britain, and the US to research the book and the information presented is as authentic to my own experience as a cheese maker and cheese science nerd. They present a compelling case that the two ideas are compatible IF we’re all willing to abandon myths and ideologies.
