A contemporary book about cheese using the author's recipes and anecdotes to introduce us to a world of cheese which is so much more than just facts and figures. Don't expect lists of dozens of cheeses but do expect to learn about cheese in a relaxed and informative manner - you can even learn how to make fresh cheese. Great salads, warming soups, ideas for scrumptious suppers and special occasions, the recipes are easy to follow. Patricia's 'Travelling Tales' intersperse the chapters - you will feel as enthusiastic about cheese from round the world as she does when you read these narrative interludes. And not forgetting great ideas for cheeseboards, fondues and how to set up your own cheese and wine tasting at home.
