Beginning in 2006, the agriculture departments of several large states — with backing from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — launched a major crackdown on small dairies producing raw milk. Replete with undercover agents, sting operations, surprise raids, questionable test-lab results, mysterious illnesses, propaganda blitzes, and grand jury investigations, the crackdown was designed to disrupt the supply of unpasteurized milk to growing legions of consumers demanding healthier and more flavorful food.

The Raw Milk Revolution takes readers behind the scenes of the government's tough and occasionally brutal intimidation tactics, as seen through the eyes of milk producers, government regulators, scientists, prosecutors and consumers. It is a disturbing story involving marginally legal police tactics and investigation techniques, with young children used as political pawns in a highly charged atmosphere of fear and retribution.

Are regulators' claims that raw milk poses a public health threat legitimate? That turns out to be a matter of considerable debate. In assessing the threat, The Raw Milk Revolution reveals that the government's campaign, ostensibly designed to protect consumers from pathogens like Salmonella, E. coli 0157:H7, and listeria, was based in a number of cases on suspect laboratory findings and illnesses attributed to raw milk that could well have had other causes, including, in some cases, pasteurized milk.

Author David Gumpert dares to ask whether regulators have the public's interest in mind or the economic interests of dairy conglomerates. He assesses how the government's anti–raw-milk campaign fits into a troublesome pattern of expanding government efforts to sanitize the food supply — even in the face of ever-increasing rates of chronic disease like asthma, diabetes, and allergies. The Raw Milk Revolution provides an unsettling view of the future, in which nutritionally dense foods may be available largely through underground channels.

Mastering Artisan Cheesemaking - the forthcoming book by acclaimed cheesemaker Gianaclis Caldwell - is the book every cheesemaker will want as their guide, taking them from creating their first, simple cheeses to producing unique, masterpiece cheeses.

While there are increasing numbers of books out there on making cheese, none approach the intricacies of the science behind how milk becomes cheese in such easy-to-understand detail. Mastering Artisan Cheesemaking explores the complexity of fermentation, affinage (aging), and considerations for preparing each category of cheese variety.

The history, science, culture and art of making handmade cheese on a small scale receive a thorough examination. Caldwell provides comprehensive information on home-scale equipment and scaling for what makes most sense. She furnishes readers with everything they could hope to know about affinage and using oils, brushes, waxes and other alternative aging techniques.

The book contains extensive recipes that include hard numbers, as well as the concepts behind each style of cheese. There are beautiful photographs, profiles of other cheesemakers, a detailed troubleshooting guide, and an extensive appendix for quick reference in the preparation and aging rooms.

Caldwell acts as a tutor, guide and cheering section as readers follow the pathway to cheesemaking artisanship described in Mastering Artisan Cheesemaking. This enjoyable and easy-to-use book will thoroughly explain the craft and techniques that allow milk to be transformed into epicurean masterpieces. For everyone from the avid home hobbyist to the serious commercial artisan, Caldwell has created an irreplaceable resource.
