Some kind words about The Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin written by Brian D’Ambrosio over at Blogcritics.org:

By connecting us to the hands behind the wheels, this wonderful — and useful — book helps us appreciate those who create 35 percent of all specialty cheeses sold in the United States and help keep Wisconsin on the map.

If you listen to public radio, you’re probably familiar with the superb food show The Splendid Table, hosted by Lynn Rossetto Kasper. Check out the show, listen to my segment, and enjoy some cheese picks, too.

The Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin is in the running for… well… Bookseller‘s annual Diagram Prize for the Oddest Book Title of the Year. It’s mildly thrilling. Mostly just weird.

We certainly can’t fault our hometown alt weekly for a lack of support — the Isthmus, once again, has given us some wonderful ink. We made the paper’s list of Best Wisconsin Foodie Books for 2009. Terese Allen writes, in part:

Cheesemakers have for too long been undervalued in our culture, and I’m so glad to see a book that gives them their due. Peruse this photo-rich, artfully written profile of cheddar, havarti and muenster makers, in fact, and you will want to rise from your chair to give them a standing ovation. James Norton’s words and Becca Dilley’s pics bring you right into the factory, where you can breathe in the milk-sweet aroma, soak up the tradition and listen to the stories of more than 40 certified master cheesemakers around the state.

We did a radio appearance with the terrific Mitch Teich for Milwaukee Public Radio’s Lake Effect program. They were also kind enough to put together a Flickr slideshow of Becca’s photography.
