It’s rare to find a comprehensive cheese book—one that beautifully articulates varieties of cheese with eye-catching photos, and even goes the extra mile to publish recipes and pairings that will ensure each of your wedge sessions unfold successfully.
But, if anyone was going to do it locally, it would be Tenaya Darlington, also know in food circles as Madame Fromage—a local cheese-writing superstar. As a regular, always-eloquent contributor to Di Bruno Bros.’ blog, she’s teamed up with the owners and cheesemongers of Philadelphia’s oldest cheese counter to scribe an insider’s look within the 1939-bred business, as served up aside a definitive breakdown of 170 varieties of cheese, 30 recipes, expert advice, dairy lexicon and much more.
Darlington’s slice of Philadelphia and its vibrant cheese scene, titled House of Cheese: A Guide to Wedges, Recipes, and Pairings, and is being locally published by Running Press, which is releasing it come early May 2013.
Hungry to get your cheese-loving paws on this jam-packed release? Visit Di Bruno Bros.’ Suburban Square location, within the Ardmore Farmer’s Market, and grab yourself a fine dose of hands-on cheese education while you wait.
