About the Author

What the world's most highly respected cheese expert, Juliet Harbutt doesn't know about cheese simply isn't worth knowing. Born in New Zealand, she came to Britain in 1984 and founded Jeroboams The Wine & Cheese Shop, a retail and wholesale company, reputably one of Britain's finest, offering over 250, mainly raw milk, French and British artisan cheeses. She also designed and ran seminars for retailers, wholesalers, and many Relais Chateaux Hotels throughout Britain. Her expertise was recognized by the French who made her a member of the Guilde des Fromagers, Confrerie de Saint-Uguzon then, in 1992, a Confrerie des Chevaliers du Taste-Fromage de France.In July 1991, she sold her interest in Jeroboams to concentrate on writing, consultancy, and lecturing, and to promote excellence and raise awareness of the magic of cheese. To achieve this she created the British Cheese Awards - the medals have become a recognized symbol of excellence. In 2000 she created the Great British Cheese Festival, a 2-day event following on from the Awards, attracting over 10,000 cheese lovers from around the world lured by the prospect of seeing, tasting, and buying over 1,000 British cheeses.Juliet has written numerous books on cheese including Guide to the Finest Cheeses of Britain (1992, 1994, 1998), The World Encyclopedia of Cheese (1998), Cheese (1999), and The British Cheese Directory (1999). She has written a monthly column in New Zealand House & Garden since 1998, was also awarded Good Housekeeeping's "Favorite Food Hero" in 2008. Juliet helped found the Specialist Cheesemakers Association and is on the Slow Food international judging committee as well as setting up the first Convivium in the UK. In 2005, Juliet was made a fellow of the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) in recognition of her work for British producers. She started the Evenlode Partnership with Alex James in 2007 to create a range of artisan cheeses."Juliet, when she talks cheese, reaches the parts that others cannot. A talented speaker, she will cajole and encourage even the most conscientious objector to have a taste."--Sarah Jane Evans, BBC Good Food Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars The only cheese book you ever need to buy. 19 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As the greediest cheese lover I know, the time came for me to buy a new cheese book. The ones already on my bookshelf were perfectly adequate, but what I was looking for was a curd compendium, a tour de force de fromage, written by many experts across the world and co-ordinated by the watchful eye of an enthusiastic editor-in-chief. And here it is. I am the proud owner of a veritable cheese encyclopedia, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my formaggio odyssey through time and travel.

The editor of the "World Cheese Book", Juliet Harbutt, came to Great Britain from New Zealand, and set up the Jeroboams Wine and Cheese shop in London, which won her many awards and accolades from industry peers. In 1994 she created The British Cheese Awards, which was followed in 2000 by The Great British Cheese Festival. She now lives in the Cotswolds where she runs a thriving cheese making business, and teaches people from all walks of life how to buy, serve and enjoy the finest cheeses in the world. She set up in partnership with Alex James, the ex-bass player of the pop band Blur and now columnist with The Independent newspaper, to produce the vine leaf wrapped, cider brandy washed, Little Wallop cheese.
In total twenty contributors have collaborated with Juliet to create this great work, and they are renowned industry specialists from all over the world. No stone has been left unturned. No rind has been left unsniffed. In 2010 the book won The Guild of Food Writers "Best Food Book Award", and it was also awarded "Le Cordon Bleu world Food Media" prize.

The introduction takes you through the story of cheese, a product whose roots hark back to 2800 years before the birth of Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Cheese Porn! 27 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I won this book in a competition elsewhere and just ordered a copy here to give as a gift, I was that over the moon upon receiving! Even if you have a mild interest in cheese, this book is for you! Everyone who has looked at this book has been drooling, there is a picture of an oozy camembery style cheese thats not for the feint-hearted ;-)

The whole book is very well laid out, explaining the different types, processes, wine matching and where to source the different cheeses, from around the world. I just need to track down Mr Bavaria Blue and my life will be complete.

10/10 :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Say Cheese! 22 Jan 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A great book and one that hasn't been put on the bookshelf - i've been too busy reading it!

If you want to know anything about cheese, this is the book to buy. It's well presented and a great deal of time and effort has gone into producing the book.

A definite must have if you are a foodie fan - or just want to know anything about cheese.

5.0 out of 5 stars YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY 27 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover
This book is complete and utter HEAVEN for any cheese buff. Filled to bursting with pictures of cheese, it is almost too tempting not to start licking the pictures [highly socially unaccepted] that look as though they could just ooze into reality.
Buy it for yourself. But it for your friends. Buy it for your neighbour. Just BUY IT.
