Fast review: Break away from the humdrum “cheese plate” and start enjoying cheese all year long with these seasonal inspired recipes.
It may seem strange to think about, but all cheese begins its life as grass. If cheese is an agricultural product, isn’t it natural to pair it with other farmers’ market treasures? Master chef and cheesemonger Chester Hastings bases his newest cookbook on this idea. The book is divided into four seasonal sections with recipes grouped by type of produce.
Hastings is also a firm believer in the old European adage—take very good ingredients and do very little to them. Each recipe is perfectly calibrated to highlight the individual facets of the dish and every ingredient serves a purpose. As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season starts, having an arsenal of low effort, high impact recipes like these is a total lifesaver.
With ninety unique dishes (over 80 of which are vegetarian), this book is a love letter to cheese that has recipes for any craving. Get your copy, head to the market, and get ready to have cheese for dinner!
Who’s kitchen would you find it in: The culinary vagabond, carnivores toying with the idea of becoming vegetarian, anyone who likes cheese!
