    1. Laurie Neighbors

      I loved this book so much I married the author.Just kidding, I married him a long time ago. But I still love the book.

    2. Dinah

      A much more intricate story than the one I thought I knew.Funny, informational, and gently but firmly reminding the reader of the complexity of food policy, capitalism, economic class, and culture. Highly recommended.

    3. Michael Sulyi

      Very nice book. Learned a lot about the cheese industry and Cheddar. If you love cheese you'll enjoy this book.

      Gordon Edgar is a cheesemonger and buyer who works for San Francisco’s Rainbow Grocery Cooperative. Cheddar is his investigation into the roots/history of American cheddar making, which has gone from small farm/family operations, to large corporate dairy factories, and back to smaller artisan endeavors. He touches on some of the important figures and businesses of the past and present and describes some of the stand-out cheeses/cheddars that he has encountered in his research. We all wish we c [...]

      Gordon Zola strikes again. A nice, succinct history of the Single Most Popular Cheese in the World (as per Monty Python's "Cheese Shop Sketch"), and its unwitting role in the nightmare that is mass produced, anodyne processed cheese (aka, "American Cheese"). And it's role in helping to bring back artisanal, small dairy cheeses. Reading this has made me crave actual cheddar cheese, for the first time in decades.

    6. Marcella

      I learned so much about the history (the good, the bad and the ugly) of this iconic cheese. AS usual, Gordon delivers.

    7. Sarah Wilkinson

      I first heard about this book when the author, Gordon, was being interviewed on Splendid Table. His enthusiasm about cheddar was really evident. I was excited when I walked into my local library (in Northern Wisconsin) and there it was front and center. Gordon writes this book in an entertaining manner. I now know more about cheddar than I ever thought I would. I recommend this book to foodies, Wisconsinites, and cheese lovers everywhere.

    8. Kate McCarthy

      This is a good read. It's about Cheddar told in first person by my favorite local cheese mongers. While that mostly gains points from me as a fan of Gordon and his storytelling, there were a couple tangents here and there that both codify the folky narrative while pulling it into op-ed county. Definitely recommend for cheese eaters.

    9. Donna Luu

      The cover of this book led me to believe it would be a light-hearted story about cheese, so it was a bit disappointing. It is a SERIOUS book about cheese with a few nice anecdotes and a bit of road-tripping.

    10. Katrina

      Everything one would ever want to know about American Cheddar cheese written in a light but informative style!

    11. Marc

      Liked it, but seemed to be written to fill up required pages. Somewhat repetitive, but still interesting history and liked the guy's style.
