    Reinventing the wheel To reinvent the wheel is to duplicate a basic method that has already previously been created or optimized by others. The inspiration for this idiomatic metaphor lies in the fact that the wheel is the archetype of human ingenuity, both by virtue of the added power and flexibility it affords its users, and also in the ancient origins which allow it to underlie much, if not all, of modern Reinventing the Wheel Technologue Motor Trend Behind the Wheel Burning Rubber in AMG s Biggest, Torquiest Sedan Behind the Wheel Burning Rubber in AMG s Biggest, Torquiest Sedan Reasons Why the Alloy Wheel Refurbishment by Reinventing The Wheel alloy Reinventing The Wheel alloy wheel repair specialists Are your wheels victims of chips, scuffs, scrapes or kerb damage Do your wheels spoil the overall appearance of your car Reinventing the wheel QED Foundation Characteristics of Meaningful Work Note from the Editor While this piece by Shawn Murphy is related to business practices and targeted to managers and business leaders, the parallels to education and student learning are striking.

    1 thought on “Reinventing the Wheel: Milk, Microbes, and the Fight for Real Cheese

    1. Fascinating look at what goes into cheese, and the development of the cheese industry in the English speaking world over the last century or so. The emphasis is on the ways in which the "best" cheese comes from cheesemakers who are also dairy farmers using raw milk from their own cows. While I'm not entirely sure I concur with their conclusion that the quality of the pastures/cows/raw milk is 100% what makes a good cheese outside of "baseline technical knowledge", I do think that it is a large c [...]

    2. I've read a lot of cheese books; about the why, where, how etc.; the Percivals managed to twine together all of those and managed to twine their own story (and others I've never and probably will never be privileged to meet) into it. It's a book that tells us our story, their story and the story of cheese. Eye opening and all encompassing, learn and grow by reading this book.

    3. I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI will start off by stating.I AM A CHEESE ADDICT. I CRAVE CHEESE. I LIVE FOR CHEESE. I NEED A 12 STEP GROUP FOR CHEESE. I GET CHRISTMAS AND BIRTHDAY MONEY TO THIS DAY TO "buy myself some (in my mother's words) fancy cheese"! I am also very, very, very lucky to live near amazing cheese stores and a local tourism-based "cheese trail" (which also overlaps with a "butter tart trail"! Reading this book sent [...]

    4. This book is jam-packed with information and anecdotes. It isn't a quick read. Perfect for anyone interested in how cheese is made and what differentiates cheeses, an advocate for raw milk in cheese, a cheese-lover, a cheese-nerd as well as any academics learning or writing about cheese.This is one of those books that I will go back to. Literally each page has a lot of information so it was slow going. If I have a trip planned, particularly to Europe, I will look and see if there are any cheesem [...]

    5. I wish this'd been around when I was cheesemongering in the 90s; it would have been really useful to have at the counter to sell as I slowly battled to be able to stock better cheeses. I would have been happy with more technical details, but of course I spent five years staring at cheese for a living and am the choir. I had to laugh about their lunch with "Andre" who I'm 99% sure was Cathy Strange, having worked with her myself.
