From Pacific Little Qualicum Cheeseworks on Vancouver Island to Atlantic Farmers Cooperative Dairy of Truro, New Scotia, chef Gurth Pretty travel across Canada to find some of the finest cheese and interpreted the receipt with the suggestion of his wife Joanne. Not the kind of too fancy receipt impossible to do for an average home cook but more simple dishes well explain and easy to follow. His partner in this project, Tony Aspler, make a great job of wine pairing, offering as many as six choice: white, red, sparkling, fortified, beer and even sometime spirit. Who need more?
With such a pleasant job, why only four stars?
As so many time, questionable editing job.
Too many blank space, some time 50% of the page and too big picture. It will be helpful to use such a space to show a series of little photography like those presented in the marvelous book of chef Christian Teubner The Cheese Bible, page 162, 186, 219, 234... which I recommend as well as this one from chef Gurth Pretty. Photography could had been much better too and description of Blue (p. 16) is inaccurate. Even with some question like those, I am a fan of Gurth (and his muse Joanne) which achieve a great job for the promotion of Canadian Cheese.
I recommend it as you will be able to use numerous receipts.
