2018: Nominated for the IACP Reference Book of the Year

The Book of Cheese is the best reference book we have found to make finding the right cheeses for you in an approachable and entertaining way. Liz Thorpe's own Gateway Cheeses system of classification will open up the world of cheese to you in a new way.

About the Author

After years in a cubicle, in 2002 Liz Thorpe was drawn out of corporate America to pursue her passion for cheese. Since then she has become the country’s leading expert on cheese, from working the counter at New York’s famed Murray’s Cheese and later expanding Murray’s wholesale business as vice president, to designing cheese menus for the country’s best restaurants, to authoring The Cheese Chronicles. Now, as founder of The People’s Cheese, Liz teaches a broader market why cheese matters and how to make it part of everyday life. She lives in New Orleans.
