"The “World Cheese Book” is a part coffee table, part culinary-experience book showcasing over 750 cheeses from around the globe with both text and beautiful (but basic) photos on glossy pages. Harbutt begins with an introduction highlighting her own cataloguing method of cheese, history, and a look at compiling the perfect cheese board. This is simple but informative text that includes very notable titbits the reader will gladly come away with."
". . . it certainly made me want to run to my local cheese shop. I feel like I learned a lot so I will be making better informed purchases." - Goodreads Reviews.
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.
