This is the Bible for cheese lovers everywhere!

It's hard to go wrong with DK (publisher) ... they work hard to produce extraordinary books!

AWESOME book with huge, gorgeous photos of so many cheeses, it will boggle your mind. Very informative with lots of little factoids about the various cheeses from all different countries. If you already have some cheese knowledge from browsing around the supermarket and want to expand your tastes, give this book a try and make a list of every cheese that looks so good, you want to eat the picture!

Discusses how cheese is made, their system for categorizing the different types, then describes some cheese in depth, and then some basic info on over 750 cheeses - plus website and supplier data at end of the book - lots of pictures too!
