Abstract or Summary
  • Oregon has a growing artisan cheese industry and is developing a reputation as one of the country’s leading regions for many varieties of cheeses. This thesis is an exploration of four of Oregon’s premier artisan creameries. The primary research for this project included visiting the farms and cheesemakers, tasting the cheeses and interviewing professionals. Secondary research consisted of consulting texts written by food writers, popular periodicals and recipe books. The thesis consists of four essays; each essay is made up of narrative accounts of visits to farms, descriptions of the cheeses and recipe suggestions for cooking with the cheeses. Through the process of writing this thesis, the author discovered the challenges of writing about food. These challenges included the following: learning the jargon of the cheese industry, cultivating a voice within the genre food writing and researching technical aspects of the cheesemaking process.
