Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Readers will assuredly crave a nibble after browsing the pages of this lavishly illustrated guide. Cheese expert and creator of The Cheese Web (www.thecheeseweb.com), Harbutt (The World Encyclopedia of Cheese) has compiled a sumptuous, visually appealing encyclopedia of over 750 cheeses, featuring photos (in whole and close-up) as well as info on terroirs and cheese production. The reader is sure to encounter the unknown—Japan, for example, has a surprisingly robust cheese industry. Still, the point of view is decidedly European. Entries are arranged geographically and then alphabetically within each country's listings, but Harbutt and her contributors highlight France and Italy and include markedly less from the New World and nothing from places like India or South Africa. VERDICT Many discoveries await the reader, and the brief descriptions offer useful advice on optimal enjoyment of each cheese. Well packaged and accessible.—Peter Hepburn, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago Lib.
