In American Cheeses, Wolf gives an in-depth look at the art and craft of cheese across the United States and documents in words and beautiful black-and-white photographs the story of the talented and committed women and men who create these cheeses. He shares his expertise on how cheese is made, how to store it, and how to serve and enjoy it.
He also explores the cheese-making communities throughout the country, discussing what cheeses are specific to certain regions of the U.S. Recipes that showcase the best cheeses of each area are also provided.
Wolf is the founder of Clark Wolf Company, the food, restaurant, and hospitality consulting firm. In 1976, he ran a little cheese shop at the base of Nob Hill in San Francisco. In 1980, he became the manager of the San Francisco branch of the legendary Oakville Grocery. Cheese is still his passion.
