You'll learn about the best ways to buy and store cheese, how to pair different cheeses with different beverages and how to create the cheese board of your dreams. And with his signature sense of humor and warmth, Afrim offers 60 easy and enticing recipes for every mealtime, including a bonus chapter called Low Risk, High Reward, for those moments when you're looking to simply eat cheese with the perfect accompaniment. Alongside Afrim's best dishes are 20 masterpieces from the world's top chefs--everyone from Daniel Boulud, Claudio Aprile, Anthony Walsh, and Rob Gentile to Chuck Hughes, Anna and Michael Olson, Bob Blumer and more.
With personal anecdotes and helpful information, creative and delicious recipes, and beautiful photography, For the Love of Cheese is sure to bring joy to your kitchen and your heart.
