Much as Joe Berkowitz had always loved cheese, a visit to an artisanal tasting at an upscale cheese shop made him realize he'd hardly even scratched the surface. These cheeses were like nothing he had ever tasted—and they were from America. This discovery inspired Berkowitz to embark on a yearlong tour exploring the subculture around cheese, and here he narrates his travels from an experimental Dairy Research Center in Wisconsin to Paris's underground cheese caves, and from the mountains of Gruyere to the World Cheese Awards.
