Gordon Edgar, Rainbow Grocery Co-Op

Gordon Edgar loves cheese and worker-owned co-ops, and has been combining both of these infatuations as the main cheese buyer for San Francisco’s Rainbow Grocery Cooperative since 1994. Gordon has been a judge at numerous national cheese competitions, a board member for the California Artisan Cheese Guild, and has had a blog since 2002. His cheese memoir, Cheesemonger: A Life on the Wedge was published in 2010 and his next book, The United States of Cheddar will be out in 2015. He enjoys mold in the right places, good cheese stink, and washing his hands upwards of 100 times a day.
