Behind every traditional type of cheese there is a fascinating story. By examining the role of the cheese-maker throughout world history and by understanding a few basic principles of cheese science, we can see how different cheeses have been shaped by their environment. Paul Kindstedt advances our appreciation of cheese origins by viewing human history through the eyes of a cheese scientist. Read the full description.

Cheese and Culture: A History of Cheese and it’s Place in Western Civilization, is a comprehensive look at the 9,000-year history of cheese. But there is also a larger story to be told, a grand narrative that bines all cheeses together into a single history that started with the discovery of cheese making and that is still unfolding to this day. This book reconstructs the story based on the fragmentary information that we have available.  Kindstedt’s book will appeal to anyone who loves history, food, and especially good cheese.
