One Place, One Cheese

October 13, 2010 at 4:52 am 11 comments

If there are two things that I love, they are comics and cheese. I’m starting into my senior thesis in earnest now, and I’m looking around for things to report on. This summer I discovered that a cheese I had been selling for years, Tarentaise, is made only twenty-five minutes from where I live now in Vermont. I went there recently, just as the leaves were turning, and was blown away by the beauty of the place. Cheese people will value the significance of this fact: their aging room is amazing — zero ammonia or harsh smells. Here’s a piece I did based on my trip. It will be published later in a To Be Announced volume. Click on the pages to see them larger.

Don’t worry, they’re not all gonna be this dense. Next week, pictures from the farm!

    Really good stuff man, I hear Culture calling…. It’s a really cool way to check out the process and give a bit of personality to the cheese. If you feel to dense, check out Kindstedt and it will make you feel a lot better.

    Josh, This is awesome. A great educational tool for our staff here at Cowgirl Creamery. You are well know in our shop through your comics even though most of our staff haven’t met you. Stop by!

    Fascinating story. I wish the family luck in their cheese making process and pray they rack up more accolades. Kudos to the Putnam family and to you Josh Kramer for telling their story so beautifully with such dedication and lovely illustrations!
