A Comforting Collection of Cheese Dishes from the James Beard Award–Winning Author

Comfort food to the max! Jan. 7 2013

Are you kidding???!!! Who doesn't like anything hot and cheesy? First read this book when I borrowed it from my local library and decided it had to be a part of my cookbook collection. It has come in very handy this winter; I use it often.

I love cheese. I grew up in Western New York where if something isn't deep fried it comes with cheese. Sometimes it is deep fried cheese. There are two reasons this cookbook did not receive an A rating from me. One, there were no pictures. No cookbook, no matter how good should be without pictures. Not hand-drawn hokey, homey ones either. We're talking full color photographs. Two, a lot of the recipes were for things WITH cheese and not OF cheese. If you look at the sections below you can see just how many of them mention "with cheese." Disappointing, that. Some of the tips about cheese in general that peppered the recipes were awesome and useful. I'll be making or trying almost 50 of the recipes in this book and it is well worth it to get it if you like cheese.
Soups. Sauces & Dips
Fritters with Cheese
Savory Crepes & Pancakes with Cheese
Pies, Tarts, and Quiches with Cheese
Pizzas, Calzones, and Breads with Cheese
Sandwiches with Cheese
Quesadillas, Enchiladas, and Burritos with Cheese
Eggs and Cheese
Cheese and more cheese
Pasta with Cheese
Rice and Polenta with Cheese
Vegetables with Cheese
Meat and Seafood with Cheese
Sweets with Cheese

There are so many choices to choose from. I've not yet read though the whole book. But I started using the book a day or so after I got it in the mail. You won't be sorry you bought this book.

Clifford Wright's love letter to cooking with cheese proves that just about any dish can be improved when cheese is one of the ingredients. If macaroni & cheese and a ham & cheese sandwich are the only cheese dishes that pop into your mind, let Hot & Cheesy expand your horizons with creative cheese offerings running the gamut from savory hors doevres and soups designed to take the chill out of winter to casseroles, pasta specialties and cheesecakes.
Hot & Cheesy provides good, basic info about serving & storage tips, along with cooking with cheese techniques, followed by more than 250 mouth watering recipes for the cheese lover. This book will inspire you to visit the cheese section of your local market more often.

Is there anything better on a cold Winter's night than something hot and cheesy? Or for brunch on an icy Minnesota morning?
