Booklist Review

After enduring nutritionists' contempt for its high fat content, cheese has begun a comeback in the American diet. Cheese figures prominently in high-protein regimens, and a substantial number of Americans have discovered the pleasures of the post-dinner cheese board. When properly served and appreciated, cheeses have nearly as many flavors and aromas as fine wines. And production of artisan cheeses no longer remains the exclusive domain of the French and Italians, Americans having finally attained sophisticated enough palates to support this sort of specialized agriculture. U.S. farms now produce cheese from sheep, cow, and goat milks. Harbutt's catalog of current world cheeses amply demonstrates the vast number of cheeses produced. She categorizes them by texture, the simplest way to bring similar cheeses together. Not every cheese is pictured, but descriptions are comprehensive enough to allow distinctions. Good indexing makes this a useful reference tool. --Mark Knoblauch
