The Cheese Plate begins with the fundamentals: history, what cheese is, and how it’s made. Then McCalman moves onto the subject that has made him a star in the culinary world—the art of cheese tasting. To begin with, it’s essential to know how to buy, store, and serve cheeses, and then how to taste them (again, as with wines, the best results come with a bit of finesse). Then you’ll want to pair cheeses with other foods and beverages, especially wines, to bring out the best of both. And with all this expertise in hand, you’ll want to construct cheese plates, from a quick lunch assortment to a full after-dinner tasting extravaganza. Finally, you’ll appreciate a rundown of the best cheeses in the world—where they’re from, what they look and taste like, and their perfect wine accompaniments—so that you can become a maître fromager in your own right.
