THE BOOK OF CHEESE: The Essential Guide to Discovering Cheeses You’ll Love by Liz Thorpe

From a foremost authority on cheese comes a revolutionary book to help readers expand their universe of cheeses and discover new favorites that are similar to ones they already love

For the first time ever, in a world of monotonous cheese books, comes an entirely new way to discover and enjoy this beloved food. The country’s leading expert on cheese, Liz Thorpe has mapped the entirety of cheese, using 9 familiar favorites, or “gateways”, designed to open readers up to more fun and eccentric textures and flavors. Liz takes readers on a journey from basics like Swiss, blue, and cheddar, to explore more adventurous types that they are most likely to fall in love with.

Instead of getting caught up in technical classifications, Liz’s revolutionary approach to organizing the world of cheese allows food lovers to focus on what they care about: finding more cheeses to enjoy. Complete with fun flavor wheels, useful sidebars, and 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.

After years in a cubicle, in 2002 LIZ THORPE was drawn out of corporate America to pursue her passion for cheese. Since then she has become the country’s leading expert on cheese, from working the counter at New York’s famed Murray’s Cheese, to expanding Murray’s wholesale business as VP, from designing cheese menus for the country's best restaurants, to authoring The Cheese Chronicles. Now as founder of The People’s Cheese, Liz teaches a broader market about why cheese matters and how to make it part of everyday life.
