WATCH: “I love workplace democracy and I love cheese!” Gordon Edgar’s Punk Rock Cheese Story
Posted By dpacheco On March 16, 2010 @ 3:32 pm In Food & Health | No Comments
This video comes to us from Gordon Edgar ‘s book launch at Amnesia Bar in San Francisco’s Mission District. Somehow, the red lights and the casual boozy nightlife vibe of the place sort of fit, even though instead of a beat poet up on the stage, it’s the Rainbow Co-op’s resident cheesemonger reading from his punk rock cheese memoir.
From MissionLocal.org :
It’s not a traditional foodie memoir, which tend to be kind of upper class and bougie and what have you. It’s writing by someone who comes out of punk rock DIY culture, who works at a recurrent co-op, who has a really unique take on land, farming, food, fancy food culture, working class food culture, the weirdness of working in retail—kind of all of the above, and he does it in a really kind of take no prisoners style that is really enjoyable.
