The Cheese and the Worms is an incisive study of popular culture in the sixteenth century as seen through the eyes of one man, the miller known as Menocchio, who was accused of heresy during the Inquisition and sentenced to death. Carlo Ginzburg uses the trial records to illustrate the confusing political and religious conditions of the time. For a common miller, Menocchio was surprisingly literate. In his trial testimony he made references to more than a dozen books, including the Bible, Boccaccio's Decameron, Mandeville's Travels, and a "mysterious" book that may have been the Koran. And what he read he recast in terms familiar to him, as in his own version of the creation: "All was chaos, that is earth, air, water, and fire were mixed together; and of that bulk a mass formed—just as cheese is made out of milk—and worms appeared in it, and these were the angels." Ginzburg’s influential book has been widely regarded as an early example of the analytic, case-oriented approach known as microhistory. In a thoughtful new preface, Ginzburg offers his own corollary to Menocchio’s story as he considers the discrepancy between the intentions of the writer and what gets written. The Italian miller’s story and Ginzburg’s work continue to resonate with modern readers because they focus on how oral and written culture are inextricably linked. Menocchio’s 500-year-old challenge to authority remains evocative and vital today. -- Lauro Martines

Matt Feroze had a rather unusual dream: to become a cheesemonger in the highly competitive French cheese industry. To accomplish this, however, he would have to make huge sacrifices: give up a good job as an accountant in England and say goodbye to his friends and family, moving to a country in which he struggled with the language and knew next to nothing about the profession he wished to enter. Yet only a year later he was being crowned Champion de France des Fromagers, beating veteran French cheesemongers to the title and opening up a wealth of new opportunities for himself. The Cheese and I is the remarkable story of how he pulled off such an incredible feat. This is the inspirational tale of how an Englishman sacrificed so much to pursue and realize his goal, and proves that, with enough determination, it is possible to achieve anything you desire.

This new edition follows the successful structure of the first edition bringing together information on a wide range of fermented dairy products. It takes particular account of the profound influence that modern biotechnological sciences are having on the traditional biotechnology of dairy fermentations. For example, the taxonomy of lactic acid bacteria and of dairy pathogenic bacteria has been revolutionized in the past decade by the adoption of molecular biology techniques. Another important feature is the inclusion of a new chapter on the sensory evaluation of dairy flavors. This is a book for dairy scientists and technologists, both industrial and academic, particularly food chemists, dairy microbiologists and biotechnologists. It will also be an essential reference source for those in product development, processing and marketing, as well as regulatory officials in dairy companies and government laboratories.
