About the Author
Davies started her cheese career in New York City as an apprentice affineur in the cheese caves of Artisanal Premium Cheese, going on to manage the caves at the venerable Murray's Cheese and work as a resident cheese expert for Marlow & Sons. Her interest in cheese led her to embark on a four-month tour of forty American artisan cheesemakers, a project chronicled at cheesebyhand.com.
Davies has taught classes at the French Culinary Institute and the Cheese School of San Francisco. Her food writing has appeared on thestrongbuzz.com, in the Diner Journal, and in the cheese-focused magazine Culture.

This book did not cover the Pacific Northwest and narrow his limit on administrative border. Why?
Did the vegetation is so different in Canadian Rockies than in US one?
Did animal breed are different? Of course not.
Then I want try to figure the purpose of this publication?
Better photos? Of course not, they did not have any.
- How can someone in cheese business would like to create interest without pictures?
More accurate description? Certainly not as most useful are already in Parr book.
As this book did not go very deep in flavor or wine pairing - which are numerous in West Coast - I don't understand the need of editing such a book.
It would had been wise to wait and take time to do a beautiful book, with plenty good pictures and real wine and food pairing suggestion in the style of the wonderful Complete Guide to French Cheeses as listed in the bibliography of Sacha Davis or even better The Cheese Bible which just the first 100 pages give more inside world of cheese than this one.
My recommendation is to buy Parr book if you want a good trip and to reed Janet Fletcher Chronic in various News Paper (San Francisco Chronicle) and Magazine to go further on Pacific Northwest Cheeses.
Hope one day we will reed a greater book to represent more than California cheese but also Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and Alaska including the Rockies Mountain and plenty of their savory wine partner.
