The Cheese Plate by Max McCalman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As "maitre fromager" at New York's three-star restaurant Picholine, Max McCalman inspired food critic Ruth Reichl to write, "He speaks so lovingly and with such knowledge that I long to taste every cheese that he describes". The cheese course is enjoying a remarkable renaissance - and Max McCalman is widely acclaimed as one of its most knowledgeable and enthusiastic proponents. Illustrated with full-colour photographs, THE CHEESE PLATE will inspired the same enthusiasm among bookbuyers. McCalman discusses the special attributes of fine handcrafted cheeses, from luscious triple cremes to "boss" blues; he reveals how to enjoy each one of them to the fullest, including what to look for when buying them. He suggests appropriate foods to serve with them. And he tells how to create exciting wine and cheese pairings and memorable, stand-alone cheese courses.
