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!

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.
