Canadian Cheese: A Guide

Canadian Cheese: A Guide by Kathy Guidi

Canada—a country best known in the cheese world for its curdy poutine—is poised for an artisan cheese revolution, as the country’s cheesemakers keep racking up awards at the international level. Author Kathy Guidi, a founding member of the American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional program, knows Canadian cheese. She presents all of her knowledge in the second edition of her extensive Canadian Cheese (Firefly Books, Sept. 2014), full of updated tasting notes for artisan cheeses, pairing suggestions, and cheesemaker anecdotes. Guidi also touches on the controversial raw-milk cheese topic, as well as how to ensure a cheese’s quality.
