Summer Reads: The Telling Room
The dog days of summer are upon us, calling for a lazy afternoon and a good book. And why not pick a book with a story entwined in cheese? The Telling Room, by Michael Paterniti, offers a fascinating glimpse into one of the world's most elusive cheeses, and the man behind it.
This is a book about cheese. But that's assuming you agree that cheese can be more than just a pizza topping. That food is not just about nourishment or flavor, but how we live; about the memories we attach to a taste, even memories that turn out to be lies.
