New Reno Cheese Shop: Wedge

Congrats to my colleague Peter and his business partner for getting “Wedge: A Cheese Shop” off the ground in Reno. I had a chance to meet Peter recently- they’re going strong!

“Cheese is the adult form of milk, no longer liquid but solid or semi-solid. It’s an ancient food whose origin, predating recorded history, is assumed to lie in the practice of transporting milk in bladders made of ruminants’ stomachs, with their inherent supply of rennet. There is no conclusive evidence indicating where cheese-making originated, either in Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, or Sahara. Pliny the Elder, an early Roman historian, wrote that by the time ancient Rome came into being, foreign cheeses were transported to Rome to satisfy the elite’s tastes.

When Laura Conrow and Peter Burge decided to partner to start a cheese shop, the one thing they had in common was a passion and a desire, and they saw a need and an opportunity. Conrow came from an education environment, and Burge, the technical world. They both attended the San Francisco Cheese School, and 16 months later, came Wedge.”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
