Cheesemonger, A Life on the Wedge: An Excerpt

Gordon Edgar’s memoir has been widely praised for its funny, passionate, unpretentious style. In it, the cheesemonger for the country’s largest worker owned cooperative, Rainbow Grocery, tells the story of his life in cheese. He tells how he first fell in love with an alpine cheese, talks about the origins of cheese, and shares plenty of anecdotes from his time at Rainbow. Plenty of oddball customers have graced the cheese counter over the years. As he puts it, this is a sort of law of nature, “Co-ops attract nuts like Taleggio attracts flies.”
