Overview

This book contains more than 130 cheeses in simple, concise terms that describe them, along with wines and fruits they pair with. It is a "ready-reference guide," which can be used repeatedly without ever becoming outdated. Both the novice and expert alike will literally find hundreds of wine and cheese pairings. Included are cheese & fruit pairings, glossary of terms, regions of origin, and phonetic pronunciations of both cheese and wine. This book can easily be carried into your favorite cheese or wine shop as an index for pairings.
Unfortunately, in today's world, a person who enjoys a certain cheese (e.g. a "Fontina" from Italy) often has difficulty in finding a suitable wine to serve with it. At the opposite end of the spectrum, a person with a fine bottle of "Sangiovese" from Italy looks for the perfect matching cheese, many times without success. Oftentimes, one finds that when certain wines and cheeses are matched together they taste terrible. This book eliminates "mis-matching" by carefully selecting the wines and cheeses that do enhance each other.
