It has been six years since the last edition of this work. In that time, this country's access to cheeses and cheesemongers have increased, and therefore, so have the entries in this book. While maintaining Euro-centricity, the collection of cheeses now includes selections from China, Argentina, and Brazil, as well as Canada, Japan, and Australia. The text starts with an "understanding cheese" section, which discusses types, techniques, and drink recommendations for each. Also included is an example of the perfect cheese board. The body of the work is organized by region and country, with an emphasis on the traditional cheese cultures of Italy and France. Within each section are further highlighted types such as Gouda from the Netherlands and Sainte-Maure de Touraine AOC from France. Peter Hepburn's comment in his 2010 review of the earlier edition that, "Readers will assuredly crave a nibble after browsing the pages of this lavishly illustrated guide" still holds true. VERDICT A must for cheese connoisseurs, this title will delight with its extensive detail and full-color, up-close pictures. The tasting and enjoyment notes for each entry will guide the new cheese enthusiast.—Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen, Oregon Inst. of Technology, Portland
