I bought this book a few years ago and it is a great reference. It has beautiful photography and very nice descriptions of some amazing cheeses. When I went to the Cheese Boutique in Toronto I brought the book along. I explained to one of the staff that I was interested in trying a few of the cheeses that I had read about in the book. They did not carry all of the cheeses featured but they had several. For the ones they did not carry they were familiar enough to make recommendations of cheeses that were very similar. What a great way to experience some amazing cheese!
Now that I’ve identified a few more shops to visit I’ll see if I can try a few more from the book.
As a point of interest, the cheese I most enjoyed from my experiment at the Cheese Boutique was Roaring Forties Blue Cheese from Australia. This cheese is produced at King Island Dairy by cheesemaker Ueli Berger. I’ll explore this specific cheese deeper in a subsequent post. Let’s just say that one cheese alone made it worth the trip.
