Top Customer Reviews
This is my first cheese book I have looked at. With that being said here's my review:
This book has some good points: 1) a dictionary of specialized cheese lingo in the back which gives pretty good descriptions of the vocabulary used in cheese making. 2) it has many cheeses, and lots of pictures for a small book.And brief sections on: 3)which cheeses are best in which times of year and 4) how to read cheese labels 4) how to serve cheese/ pair with wine. It actualy covers a lot in such a small book. (even how to introduce cheese to children). It's written by an expert french cheese maker.
However, the book is translated from french and therefore suffers a bit in english. Sometimes it's a bit hard to understand what they are saying since it still carries the french way of speaking though using english words. That's just to warn you. Plus I was disappointed that it was so small in size... but it's cheap, and I guess easy to carry around if you need to refer to it at some cheese market. It's not a bad deal for the price and it's a fairly good introduction to a broad range of cheese topics.
