Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once expensive delicacies, cheeses have become more popular than ever and are now easily available from around the world — France, Italy, Spain, England, Greece, Mexico. But how to choose from the wide variety? Authors of the bestselling The New Food Lover's Companion, Sharon Tyler Herbst and Ron Herbst provide the essential information the cheese lover needs in one definitive, user-friendly volume.

In addition to the more than 500 cheese entries, The Cheese Lover's Companion describes:

  • how a cheese is made
  • how to buy, store, and serve various cheeses
  • what cheeses pair well with different wines, ales, and beers
  • tips on cooking with cheese

While there are hundred of cheese books available, most are large, weighty tomes with cheeses arranged by country, which means readers have to know where the cheese is from or search through a confusing index to find it. The Cheese Lover's Companion is the most comprehensive, indispensable, user-friendly A-to-Z guide that includes everything about cheese. Included are entries from Asiago to Zamorano; cheese terminology; information on how cheese is made along with tips for pairing cheese with wine and beer. The small, handy format makes it easy to take the book along when choosing and buying cheese.

Book News Annotation:

A fun and irresistible read, this small tome contains a wealth of information on every cheese you can name. The entry for each cheese offers a description of the cheese and its history, where and how it's made, and similar varieties. The entries also contain the cheese's vital statistics, including pronunciation, origin, milk, type, appearance, texture, and flavor. An introductory chapter describes different kinds of cheese and how they're made and suggestions for wine and beer pairings. A glossary and bibliography are included.
