5.0 out of 5 stars Go on pursue your passion for cheese, 22 Dec 2011
This review is from: Mastering Cheese: Lessons for Connoisseurship from a Maitre Fromager (Hardcover)
Mastering Cheese, Lessons for Connoisseurship from a Maitre Fromager is a book that anyone who wants to sell cheese for a living should read. It is packed with in-depth information on all aspects of making and serving cheese. However, those who simply enjoy eating cheese as a hobby might find this book to be a little too informative and may enjoy one of McClaman's first two books (The Cheese Plate and Cheese ) more than this one.

The Pros
There is a lot of information about all aspects of cheesemaking
Topics other books don't address as well are explored, like where flavor and aroma comes from
McCalman shares his secrets for pairing cheese and wine
Clearly written with a light, conversational tone
Artisanal cheesemakers are introduced and give their opinions about cheese-making
The Cons
More of a course book for food professionals than a light read for cheese enthusiasts
No recipes are included
Repeats some information included in McCalman's first two books
Description

The first section covers the history of cheese, how cheese is made, raw milk, animal breeds, & how to taste & describe cheese
The middle chapters discuss McCalman's "foolproof logic" for pairing cheese with beverages and serving cheese plates
The final third of the book talks about specific types of cheese and introduces some lesser-known cheeses
Guide Review - Mastering Cheese by Max McCalman

From the author of The Cheese Plate and Cheese comes a third book that delves even deeper into the process of becoming a cheese connoisseur. The history of cheesemaking and the process of making cheese is discussed at length and readers are given tips and lessons in serving cheese plates and pairing cheese with beverages. Along the way, McCalman reveals his favorite artisanal cheeses from around the world. While Mastering Cheese might be most interesting and helpful to people who sell and serve cheese for a living, the tone of the book is conversational enough to engage even those who simply enjoy eating and serving cheese at home.
