Although many artisan cheesemakers of this era learned to make cheese by trial and error, Pierre Kolisch, a former attorney, learned to make cheese by studying cheesemaking in France for two years . . . . Kolisch then returned to his native Oregon, purchased five acres in the central Oregon town of Redmond, acquired goats, and started Juniper Grove Farm in 1987.-- Pacific Northwest Cheese: A History by Tami Parr. Mmmmmmm . . . Juniper Grove is one of my favorites.
Pacific Northwest Cheese is an entertaining new history of regional cheesemaking. Tami Parr uses the stories of local cheesemakers and industry innovations to describe the early days and development of the cheese business in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
Parr is the author of Artisan Cheese of the Pacific Northwest and the creator of the Pacific Northwest cheese project.
