In it you’ll find tips on buying and storing cheese, how to serve cheese, ideas on how to make a killer cheese or charcuterie board, and suggestions on enhancing that board with specialty food products, including fruit and vegetables. Chef Debbi includes simple recipes to make soft and fresh cheese, as well as homestyle recipes that use cheese to create delicious dishes. Her previous book, What’s In Your Pantry?, is an easy-to-follow guide she created for her cooking class clients on how to keep your pantry stocked with basic ingredients.
