it was amazing

Brilliant writing, hilarious, and not pretentious at all. A former punk becomes a knowledgable cheesemonger in San Fran. I loved it because there's a respect for the product, a love for the product, but not a worship of the product. "It's just food, eat what you like" is a constant refrain and, although he loves cheese and knows more than just about anyone about it...he still thinks it's a little silly.

A fantastic read. 5 stars.
