Quick Facts

Who wrote it: Claudia Lucero

Who published it: Workman Publishing

Number of recipes: 16 different cheeses, with recipes for using them

Other highlights: There were so many times while flipping through this book that I stopped and though, "Huh. I had no idea that cheese was so easy." Halloumi? Burrata?A pretty convincing 1-hour cheddar lookalike? So awesome! Every one of these cheese recipes is accompanied by several pages of photos illustrating not only what to do, but how the cheese should look (and sometimes stretch) at each stage of the game. I also appreciate the quick rundown of key characteristics for each cheese, from best ways to use it to how soon its ready to eat (because some are ready in less than an hour!).
