Running Press, $25

This seductive little book is no ordinary cheese guide. Author Tenaya Darlington (creator of the popular Madame Fromage blog) takes a playful approach: Teaming up with the experts at Philadelphia’s famed Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese, she personifi es the world’s greatest artisan cheeses to help you fi nd a cheese to love. You’ll meet mild, friendly “Quiet Types” like Lancashire and manchego, luxurious “Vixens” such as Brie de Meaux and Robiola Bosina, picnic-ready “Free Spirits” like Bûcheron and Bulgarian feta, and hardened “Wise Guys” such as scamorza and Pecorino Toscano. Tantalizing descriptions, tasting notes, and pairing suggestions along with buying, storing, and serving tips and 30 recipes round out the volume.

Tasting Notes

Manchego and Marcona Almond Pesto (page 53) Yum! This recipe unites mild-mannered manchego, almonds, garlic, arugula, lemon, and olive oil for a toasty, peppery, bright-tasting pesto that’s perfect for pasta or crusty bread.

Pickled Feta with Cerignola Olives and Strawberries (page 73) Tangy, sweet, and briny ingredients come together in this surprising and wonderfully satisfying salad.
