The Book of Cheese

The Week (US) - - 22 Arts - By Liz Thorpe (Flat­iron, $40)

Put your trust in Liz Thorpe to make the far reaches of your lo­cal cheese counter less for­bid­ding, said Steven Jenk­ins in The Wall Street Jour­nal. The prom­i­nent New York cheese­mon­ger brings “vast knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence and zeal” to this primer, in which she iden­ti­fies nine “gate­way” cheeses—sta­ples such as moz­zarella, brie, and ched­dar—that can open paths to less fa­mil­iar va­ri­eties. Though long and oc­ca­sion­ally marred by hip­ster jar­gon, “this book is a fine guide to ex­pand­ing your reper­toire.”
