    This review is from: Cheese & Beer (Hardcover)

    I was expecting something longer and more technical and at first found it’s brevity disappointing, but I soon found it to be advantageous. This book is perfect for a quick reference to pair a delicious cheese with whatever beer style you might have in your fridge. Each chapter is about a page or two long and gives a quick run down on the beer style, a list of examples, a brief explanation of what cheeses go well with this beer style and why, and some examples of cheeses to try.

    At first I wanted to rate this 4 stars, which I feel it deserves if read alone. To get the full 5 star rating it is essential to find a local cheese specialty shop and talk with them about the base knowledge you gained from the book to further experiment with combinations.

    This review is from: Cheese & Beer (Hardcover)

    The title of this book had this reviewer daydreaming for a while, remembering long, hot summer lunches in a traditional English pub, consuming a fair amount of English ale and eating crusty sandwiches, overflowing with cheese and onion! Lovely.

    So what better way to kill a few hours, dream a bit about good food and possibly broaden your horizons at the same time? This is a little book of discovery, of voyage, of dreams. A book about a good marriage. A union of two things that can vary wildly in isolation, yet when together they can be a “match made in heaven”. Forget about mass-produced supermarket cheeses and industrial brewing of beer, look more towards artisan cheeses, craft beers and an enjoyable experience. This book provides both an overview and a pairing-off recommendation to two dozen different beer styles and what cheeses could go best with them. Along the way, a lot of information and education awaits you.

    Of course, some of the products might not be available in your locality, but the author has thought of that and tried to focus more on the type of a product rather than a given name. Even if, for some reason, you have difficulty obtaining the same “ingredients” you can have even more fun mixing and matching yourself.

    There is more to this book than just a series of food and drink matches. It is very deceptive as the descriptive text could appear to be quite limited yet there is a hidden depth, a clear focus and a directed drive to everything you read. You receive background knowledge, informed guidance and inspiration to lead out on your own and make your own investigations. The world is literally yours for the taking, as long as you don’t dislike good cheese and bear!

    Some great photographs draw you in. Engaging text that is accessible and interesting both to beginners and experts alike. About the only real issue is that the products are not included. A strange Pavlovian reaction is almost guaranteed once you start looking through this book. Even if you wasn’t thirsty or hungry before, flip through a few pages and… hmmm…… You might even find the beer and cheese index at the end starts to resemble a check list over time. Tried that, check. Tried that, check. Tried that…

    As you might imagine, this reviewer loved this book. It is frustratingly annoying that there are several working hours left and no chance of nipping out for a quick bit of beer and cheese… Roll on the evening!
