Sheep stories, from Awassi, the comeback kid, to Black Faced Manech, a mountain dweller via A Field Guide to Cheese (Artisan Books, September 2020) by Tristan Sicard.
The Awassi is indigenous to the Middle East (Syria, Turkey, Israel) yet found his way to the United States.
The Black Faced Manech can be spotted in the French and Spanish Pyrenees as well as Portugal.
As for A Field Guide to Cheese, it will teach you everything you wanted to know and more about cheese history, geography, taste, pairings and much more.
You will find yourself going back to that cheese well of a book throughout the year and those to come.
