Book Description

Aug. 17 2010
Most of us are intimidated in front of the cheese case with too many varieties to choose from. We end up buying the same familiar cheese even if we set out to try something new. Most Canadians have no idea what they’re missing in Canadian Cheese and yet new Canadian cheeses continue to emerge. Canadian Cheese: A Pocket Guide is a reference to some of the newest, best and most popular of them. It includes concise tasting information for approximately 180 cheeses from coast to coast, with emphasis on artisan varieties, while providing enchanting author and cheesemaker anecdotes, useful information on buying and serving, as well as author insights on popular cheese topics like raw milk cheese, discerning quality, whether to eat the rind (or not), cheesemaking and ingredients.

I use this book as a go to resource when "cheducating" folks about Canadian artisan cheeses and the best of curd that Canada has to offer. As a cheese sommelier in Ottawa, Ontario and former student of Kathy Guidi, I can attest to the wealth of information between the pages. From a getting to know cheese better (it leads you down a solid, sensible, logical, cheese 101 path as you flip the pages following the same flow that one would expect in a more formal cheese education setting, providing cheese knowledge foundation) to a handy reference of over a hundred top Canadian artisan cheeses (all chosen as solid representation of an excellent cheese in it's category) to a bit of Canadiana cheese lore, sharing personal tidbits about individual cheeses/cheesemakers, it's a book no Canadian (or any) cheese lover should be without. Mine is dog-eared, and marked up, but I still pull it out every time I'm teaching a class, enjoying one of my favourites, or sharing information with friends & family. Highly recommended for the cheese lover in your life!

A nice review of Canadian cheeses. I was hoping for recipes and it is my fault for getting a book of description versus instruction. But it is a good reference book all the same.

This fun and savvy "guide book" is essential for easy navigation through the Canadian cheese case. Small enough to actually use while shopping. Conveniently divided into colour-coded sections by cheese type. Ms. Guidi is THE expert on the subject and her descriptions are accurate and informative. This book will make a great gift for any foodie!
