Speaker: Hi everyone, welcome back to Le Gourmet TV. So, today we’re going to look at another cheese book. A couple of weeks ago, I did Gurth Pretty's Guide to Canadian Artisanal Cheese, the definitive guide to Canadian Artisanal Cheese. And a lot of my viewers in the U.S. emailed me and said, ‘Oh well, is there a book that covers basically the same thing for cheese makers in the United States? Because a lot of the Artisanal cheese makers, you can really only get their cheese if you go to the fromagerie or you live in the area and you get to a store that carries it, because they’re not widely distributed. So, here is the book for my American viewers. It is the Atlas of American Artisan Cheese. And it’s ablative pretty much exactly the same way as a Gurth’s book. It’s broken down by region, further broken down by State. And then within each State, they break it down by type of milk that is used, goat, sheep, cow.
Each cheese maker gets their own page or two pages as the case may be depending on their size. And, within there they talk about the story of the cheese maker, how you can get hold of the cheese maker telephone, web, email, all of the ways to find people these days. And, it is a great book if you want to explore American Artisanal Cheese makers. And I think that’s something that more and more people are interested in doing, judging by the numbers of emails that I get.
And, you know, you really should take a look at small producers. You doesn’t have to travel as far, and not all of that is all about carbon footprint, a lot of that is about flavor. If you doesn’t have to travel as far, you doesn’t have to stay and storage as long; you’re getting it fresher and the flavor is going to be at its peak level, which I think is very important, because if you’re not eating food for flavor, then why are you eating food? So if you live in the United States and you’re looking for a guide to cheese makers and even if you live in Canada and you travel to the United States on a regular basis, and you wanted to do a cheese tour, here is the guide book for your cheese tour.
And, I think this is an invaluable resource, and it should be on just about every foodie’s book shelf. So, if you’re out there and you’re looking for a good guide book to American cheese, give this is a shot. Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon.
