Acerca de


The Summer of a Thousand Cheeses is a window into the burgeoning world of the new American cheeses as seen through the authors' eyes and experiences. Unlike other cheese books, this is written by and for beginning enthusiasts. A tale of discovery, it invites readers to set off on their own paths of adventure.

Intended for the many people who are interested in cheese and want to know more, it provides and easy, entertaining introduction. Not a mere compendium of cheese types, or an "Idiots Guide to Cheese," nor a scholarly treatise, it invites readers and browsers to follow the authors as they peek into little-known corners of the rapidly evolving food scene.

Among those who have unknowingly been waiting for this book are the numbers of enthusiasts who belong to the American Cheese Society and legions of would-be enthusiasts, such as the 25,000 people who attend the Festival de Fromages de Warwick in rural Quebec, Canada, and the 1,000-strong crowds at sold-out Vermont Cheesemakers Festivals. And many more of the millions of Americans who are becoming ever more sophisticated about foods will enjoy the book.

Including a traditional narrative that recounts the authors' trail of discoveries in their own voices, it also features many "Short Takes"--1-3 page spreads on stand-alone topics. With these and many photos, captions, and sidebars, customers need not read the book from start to finish, but can nibble away at this one like fine cheeses, in small, satisfying morsels.

About the Author:

Russell J Hall is a former academic and government scientist. After a 30-year career as a wildlife biologist, he has taken up writing full time. Prior to the cheese book, he wrote three non-fiction books and three novels, all of which are available on Amazon.

After a long career in university teaching and administration, Peg Rooney Hall has been consulting and writing. Her writings include research articles and a scholarly book. The Summer of a Thousand Cheeses is her first book-length general interest publication.
