Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From Library Journal:New Haven, CT, bistro/cheese shop owner Sobocinski's new cookbook may not be lengthy, but it is packed with features to entice readers. True to its title, the book celebrates the use of cheeses in dishes. The recipes themselves are recognizable as either classics or comfort foods but are often updated with clever twists. The color photographs are eye-catching and especially helpful when they show step-by-step processes. The real attraction, though, is the writing. Sobocinski banters with readers, confiding his culinary secrets to them and making them feel as if they are regular diners to whom he has slipped a cherished recipe on a well-annotated card. Verdict: Entertaining and inviting, this is a cookbook many will enjoy. Recommended.—Peter Hepburn, Univ. of Illinois, Chicago Praise for the author's New Haven bistro/cheese shop"Caseus proves that if you start with great ingredients and cook simply, you can't go too far wrong." —New York Times
