Complete Illustrated Guide to Cheeses of the World: Cheese Identification and Selectionby Juliet Harbutt
Cheese is a delicacy that has been aged and eaten for centuries in cultures across the globe; its rich and various roots have caused this single food to assume many subtle differences in color, texture, and taste. People fall in love with indigenous cheeses while traveling or, more frequently, sample them in gourmet shops or supermarkets at home. There has also recently been a revival of interest in both traditional methods of cheese-making and the nurturing of rare breeds of cattle, further increasing the number of cheeses to discover. Thus, selecting a single type of cheese is a formidable task. The Complete Illustrated Guide to Cheeses of the World will ease cheese lovers through this difficult process by providing all of the information that is necessary in making a wise choice. With this amazingly thorough volume readers will:
-- learn how to select the perfect type of cheese for cooking and/or for eating as well as how to serve and store the cheese.
-- discover how to create an exquisite cheese-board.
-- receive expert advice on the specific wines that complement specific cheeses.
