The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide: Over 100 Recipes, with Instructions on How to Buy, (Paperback)
With so many wonderful cheeses available, it can be difficult to choose among them. To help navigate this abundance of riches, The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide contains descriptions of a hundred cheeses by taste, texture, country of origin, and type of milk used to make them, as well as suggestions on selecting cheeses and putting together a cheese course when entertaining.
Reflecting various influences -- Southern, Mexican, Southwestern, and Italian -- The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide is at once international and familiar, and always full of flavor. Because Lambert is a cheesemaker, she is not afraid to experiment in the kitchen, and she shares her delicious results. From the bold and unusual Artichoke, Spinach, and Goat Cheese Spring Rolls to the delicious and traditional Fettuccine ai Quattro Formaggi, cheese is the main focus in each of these artfully creative recipes. She also includes recipes for courageous and unintimidated cooks to make their own Crème Fraîche, Fresh Cream Cheese, Cottage Cheese, Mascarpone, Ricotta, Queso Blanco, and Aged Tomme at home.
For home chefs and anyone interested in learning more about the delicious world of cheese, The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide is ideal. Every cheese lover will be thrilled with the mouth-watering results.

Steven Jenkins author of the Cheese Primer The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide is a joy to me, not only for the expert, cheese-specific information, but also for the numerous, extraordinary recipes.

Dean Fearing chef of The Mansion on Turtle Creek I love Paula's cheeses, we were the first restaurant to carry them, and now The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide shares her brilliance with the rest of the world.
David Rosengarten host of Taste and co-anchor of In Food Today on the Television Food Network Paula Lambert, one of our national culinary treasures, has put together a mouthwatering collection of cheese-friendly recipes, both classic and creative. Good as the dishes are, I'd buy the book simply as a basic guide to cheese: it is thorough, clear, intelligent, and concise.
Stephan Pyles chef, author, and host of the national PBS series New Tastes from Texas While most people recognize Paula Lambert as one of the most gifted cheesemakers in America, not everyone realizes just what an accomplished cook she is. The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide not only showcases her dedication to the craft of making cheese, but also shares her enthusiasm and passion for life, food, and wine. After reading all the delicious recipes in this book, I have come to two conclusions: (1) I want my last meal on earth to include cheese, and (2) I want Paula Lambert to prepare that meal.
