Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
05/15/2014
Hastings, chef and cheesemonger of the popular Los Angeles eatery Joan's on Third, follows his debut The Cheesemonger's Kitchen with a fruit and vegetable-centric collection of cheese recipes grouped by season. Some recipes, such as coffee-rubbed leg of lamb stuffed with spinach and aged cheddar, are challenging and substantial. Others, including breakfast radishes with triple-cream cheese, are minimal, requiring few ingredients and little to no cooking. VERDICT This book's exciting pairings will tempt cheese connoisseurs. For a cheese glossary and more supplementary information, try Max McCalman and David Gibbons's The Cheese Plate.
