Cheese Essentials: An Insider's Guide to Buying and Serving Cheese -- Laura Werlin
Whether shopping at gourmet markets or at Costco, American consumers are seeing a growing array of new cheeses. But as the number of cheeses has grown, so has the intimidation factor. Recognizing this disconnect between our voracious appetite for cheese and our often-sketchy knowledge of it, cheese expert Laura Werlin set out to demystify the cheese-buying experience. Laura Werlin's Cheese Essentials--a comprehensive introduction in a convenient guidebook format--is the extremely useful result.
