4.0 out of 5 stars Pictures you can taste, 8 July 2009

This review is from: French Cheeses (Eyewitness Companions) (Paperback)
I've been interested in cheeses for some time, but the usual guides and atlases are every bit as bland as the cheeses are exciting. This Eyewitness Companion is different. The photography is so mouthwateringly realistic you can almost taste it. The descriptions of the cheeses, production methods and even the recommended wine accompaniments are very helpful. If there is a small downside, and invariably there is, it would be that the cheeses are presented alphabetically, whereas I'd like to see a regional compilation too, which would be helpful to travelling tasters.

4.0 out of 5 stars handy and useful guide, 21 Dec 2009

This review is from: French Cheeses (Eyewitness Companions) (Paperback)
The eyewitness guides are always beautifully produced and this is no exception. The book is wall to wall photographs of excellent quality. Further, it is pretty much as complete as you can be on a subject where local knowledge of "artisanal" products needs to be obtained. Most if not all your favourites will be there, with interesting facts and detail. Curiously, the tasting notes are a bit variable from one cheese to the other and not very systematic; some sort of rating system would be helpful as in most wine guides. Laguiole for example gets two lavishly illustrated pages, but it doesn't tell you what it tastes or smells like! Overall though, a pretty good effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Le Homage to Fromage!!, 28 Dec 2011

This review is from: French Cheeses (Eyewitness Companions) (Paperback)
A must for any french cheese lover - this book is brilliant! Gives you details of the content of the cheese, the maker, the area it comes from, what accompanies it well and much much more - and there are some cheese you've maybe never heard of but this makes you want to source them and try them. Bought a copy for a friend for Christmas, she loved it!! A great research tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know., 5 Aug 2013

This review is from: French Cheeses (Eyewitness Companions) (Paperback)
I gave my son this book for his birthday and he was delighted to receive a book with so much information. He holidayed in France and enjoyed trying different cheeses but admitted he didn't know much about French cheese. He has no excuse now! The book is well illustrated and makes it easy to identify any cheese.
