It's a love story for the ages: a guy lies his way into a job and discovers a love and passion for the greatest food in the world... Cheese! Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge
($12) is the funny and witty story of Gordon Edgar's unlikely success and career in a San Franciscan co-op as a cheesemonger. Like Edgar, you will walk away with an appreciation for the styles, producers, animals, and techniques that go into making great cheese - intertwined with amusing anecdotes of problem customers, animal rights activists, business ethics, and taste epiphanies.
