"Say Cheese! The Story of The Era When New York State Cheese was King"

by Milton Sernett PhD

His newest book is titled “Say Cheese!” It’s the story of cheese-making in New York State.

The book outlines the era when New York had thousands of cheese factories. The first is credited to a farmer named Jesse Williams, north of the city of Rome. Williams, for the first time in the history of American dairying, in 1851 converted sweet milk from surrounding dairies into cheese at a central plant. He invented cheesemaking machinery and trained numerous cheesemakers.
