Cheese Plate

Chronicle Books
Try Cheese Plate for just $2.99 (limited time offer). Celebrated food journalist, author, and cheese expert Janet Fletcher presents 25 themed cheese plates featuring stunning photography and in-depth descriptions, all perfect for entertaining.

Each cheese plate features three perfectly complementary cheeses—all with suggested alternates—for a total of 150 cheeses you’re bound to love. With every cheese plate and cheese pictured, it’s easy to know what you’re looking for when you get to the store, what wine styles go with which cheeses, and even how to serve it.

Learn how to pronounce the cheese, who makes it, what type of milk is used, the country of origin, and which three adjectives (e.g. mellow, nutty, sweet) most aptly describe it. Slightly longer descriptions give you more details about texture and the story behind the cheese to read when you have time—perfect for party planning before you head to the store (or while you’re in line waiting to be helped).

Salute to Spain (Manchego, Queso de la Peral, Leonora)
Spotlight Northern Italy (Taleggio, Piave, La Tur)
A Range of Rinds (Red Hawk, Camembert, Comté)
Famous for Centuries (Roncal, Pont L’evêque, Coulommiers)
