A Comforting Collection of Cheese Dishes from the James Beard Award–Winning Author
On a pizza, in a casserole, sprinkled on top, or stuffed inside, melted cheese turns an ordinary meal into a decadent delight. It's a staple ingredient in our favorite comfort foods—from a gooey macaroni and cheese to a spicy quesadilla—but never before have so many diverse and delicious cheese recipes been brought together in one amazing cookbook. Hot & Cheesy offers more than 250 recipes from around the world covering fritters, pastries, casseroles, pastas, sandwiches, pizzas, breads, and almost anything else you can top, stuff, or sprinkle with cheese.
Today's cooks have more varieties of cheeses to choose from than ever before, but what to do with them? Hot & Cheesy solves that cheese lover's dilemma with a wealth of American and international comfort foods dripping with cheeses of every kind. But there is far more than just recipes and cooking directions here. With his trademark wit and worldliness, award-winning author Clifford A. Wright includes entertaining historical and cultural notes that add fascinating context to these incredible flavors. From imported artisanals to the pride of Wisconsin, from Gouda to Gruyere, no matter what your favorite cheese is, you'll find the perfect recipe for it here.
