The Book of Cheese is the first book of its kind to be organized not by country, milk type, or any other technical classification. Instead, it maps the world of cheese using nine familiar favorites, what author Liz Thorpe calls the Gateway Cheeses. Liz takes readers on a journey from basics like Swiss, Blue, and Cheddar, to explore more adventurous types. For example, if you love Brie, Liz shows you how to find other Brie-like cheeses, from the mild Moses Sleeper to the pungent Fromage de Meaux. Liz's revolutionary approach allows food lovers to focus on what they care about: finding more cheeses to enjoy. Also included is the best information you’ll ever find on pairings, storage, cooking with cheese, and cheese plates. Illustrated throughout with gorgeous photography, The Book of Cheese will quickly become not only your favorite book on this mouthwatering food but the only book on cheese you will ever need.
"Liz Thorpe was and still is the most instrumental figure in my life when it comes to cheese. The Book of Cheese creates a new system for learning about cheese that is much less a dictation of facts, and much more a conduit for adventure."
"The Book of Cheese is your gateway to great cheese knowledge. It's all here in this beautifully designed, wonderfully well-written, completely comprehensive book. But be warned: Once you read it, you'll be hooked--great cheese will be a big part of your eating for the rest of your life!"
--ARI WEINZWEIG, COFOUNDING PARTNER, ZINGERMAN'S COMMUNITY OF BUSINESSES
"Liz's knowledge of cheese has been invaluable to us at The French Laundry and Per Se. Whether working with our chefs or teaching classes to our staff, her passion is contagious and has helped us to elevate our cheese program through the years."
