A charming journey through all things cheese. This has me want to to make my own journey! ( )

This book takes its place besides volumes on cod, salt, beer, coffee and other individual ingredients. Less of a history and more of a personal experience of cheese in all its glory, it has some great descriptions. It made we want to go out and learn more and sample some of the cheese mentioned. Although, not with the author and his wife, who I think would be very annoying. ( )

This is a laugh-out-loud treasure of a book that deals with the history and mystery of cheese in very layman terms. Eric and his wife Chuck ("pate to my rind" he says) are HUGE cheese fans. So, they decide to immerse themselves in it as much as they can on a very limited time and money budget. They do manage to go to an impressive number of places, including France twice (with hilarious results each time). This is a delightful read, which includes descriptions of complex cheeses such as "does not play well with others" or "this cheese was made to be consumed in a windy meadow", "tastes like what a milkmaids cheeks should", etc. Just about every page will have you laughing, yet this book teaches you a tremendous amount of information about cheese and will undoubtedly have you looking for the nearest local cheese monger to try some of them for yourselves!
