A Guide to Wedges, Recipes, and Pairings
(Running Press, 2013, Hardcover) Peek behind Philadelphia’s largest and oldest cheese counter for a lively guide to pairing cheese with everything from beer and cocktails to olives and charcuterie. The store’s resident cheese blogger, Madame Fromage, brings to life 170 of the world’s greatest artisan cheeses, drawing on stories and knowledge from the store’s third-generation owners.
The book offers 30 recipes, from Cheddar Ale Soup to Rogue River Sushi, along with a dairy lexicon, notes on how to taste cheese, and a variety of themed boards: a Fireside Party, an All-Goat Blow-Out, and a selection of Desk Bento. Beautiful four-color photographs serve to put names with wheels and wedges of cheese.
