Description
Collecting the vast accumulated wisdom of two of the world's great cheesemakers, Cowgirl Creamery Cooks is one of those rare books that immediately asserts itself as an indispensible addition to the food lover's library. That's because Cowgirl Creamery Cooks is many things. It's an engrossing read that shares the story of the Cowgirls, but also of the rise of the organic food movement and creating an artisanal creamery. It's a primer on tasting, buying, storing, pairing, and appreciating all kinds of cheese that makes this a gorgeous gift for the cheese lover. And it's a sumptuous collection of recipes, with 75 appetizers, soups, salads, snacks, entrees, and desserts that showcase cow-, goat-, and sheep-milk cheese. Throughout, the glorious photographs of Hirsheimer & Hamilton portray myriad cheeses, finished dishes, and the landscapes and people who created them.
