A good Cheese book?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
With my birthday coming up, I have decided I would really like a book on cheese. Not making cheese, but the flavors of cheese, how to put together a cheese plate, other foods to go with cheese, wines and cheeses, and the sort.

Any recommendations?


Thanks guys,
Gummy-Bear

Max McCalman has very pretty cheese books. The CHeese Plate (?) is great and give you lots of plating tips. My favourite cheese book is the least expensive: The CHeese Lover's Companion by the late great Sharon Tyler Herbst is a must for any serious cheese-head. No picures but thorough info on just about every cheese.

For something a little lighter (a novel), you must read "Blessed are the Cheesemakers" by Sarah-Kate Lynch. A very pleasant late-night read.

Cheese Primer by Steven Jenkins is the one I have. I like it pretty well.

Cheese Book

My favorite cheese book is CHEESE a Connoisseur's guide to the worlds best. The authors are Max McCalman and David Gibbons. I had the pleasure of meeting Max and speeking with him at an Epicurian Event in Traverse City Michigan. Great Book.

I second that. It's helped me with my cheese plates and shopping...

I haven't checked out the one you got for your birthday, but it sounds great.

Cheese Primer is now on my wish list. I enjoy the book, it's a lot of information and very useful, directed to the home cook/entertainer with basic storage information in the front. I am enjoying it greatly, getting laughed at by the boyfriend for reading it cover to cover.
