With Gordon Edgar, author of Cheddar: A Journey to the Heart of America’s Most Iconic Cheese, and what it can tell us about our history, cultural identity, and food politics and J.K. Dineen, author of High Spirits: The Legacy Bars of San Francisco, The Best Places to Imbibe in San Francisco.
“Gordon Edgar’s latest work, Cheddar, is a lively story of this much-maligned but iconic cheese. No longer will I quickly pass over the large blocks of golden cheddar. Edgar has traveled the country unearthing the historic roots of cheddar, from the artisan clothbound wheels to the mass-produced blocks of commodity cheese, and writes with wit and humor.”--Kurt Timmermeister, author of Growing a Farmer
Gordon Edgar, author of Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge loves cheese and worker-owned co-ops, and has been combining both of these infatuations as the cheese buyer for San Francisco’s Rainbow Grocery Cooperative since 1994.
About High Spirits:
“From Vesuvio to the Silver Crest, Sam Jordan’s to the Twin Peaks, Dineen unearths the rollicking, poignant and hilarious stories that lurk behind the swinging doors. High Spirits is a righteous pour from the top shelf.”—Gary Kamiya, author of Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco
J. K. Dineen is a metro reporter at the San Francisco Chronicle.
