If you’re in the Berkeley area, you may want to make it a point to drop in on the Books Inc. book release party. Author Gordon Edgar (Gordonzola if you’re nasty) will be signing copies of his book, Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge. And there will be cheese. Oh yes. There will be cheese.
Here’s what Amy of “Cooking with Amy” had to say about the book:
Because I was a big fan of the cheese department at Rainbow Grocery, I interviewed Gordon for KQED several years ago and was surprised to learn we went to the same high school. Since then I’ve been impressed with how knowledgeable, funny and what a great writer he is, in addition to being a great cheesemonger of course. So I am particularly happy to tell you his first book is just as wonderful as he is. The book combines humor, politics and all things cheese, especially the stories behind cheeses you may know and cheeses you will certainly seek out after reading the book. I had cheese on the brain while reading the book and it gently steered me away from some of my usual picks over to some more interesting ones. Hello, Explorateur!
The event starts at 7 pm.
