This book is for true connoisseurs of Italian cheese. It covers 293 specialties, exhaustively described and lavishly illustrated. A comprehensive catalog of produce from an incredible variety of landscapes and environments, of animal breeds and production techniques, as well as a wealth of specialist information.

DESCRIPTION: "Italian Cheese", Slow Foods Edition (503 pages, paperback). Many of the cheeses portrayed in this delightful book - stracciata, giuncata, formaggio di fossa, formaggetta della valle Argentina—are not household names and they probably never will be. They’re a few of the 293 traditional Italian farmhouse cheeses lovingly described in this book from Slow Food International, as a “contribution to the conservation of a vast heritage of local products, born of Italy’s extraordinarily varied landscapes, natural environments, dairy breeds, and cheesemaking techniques.”

Starting with illustrated descriptions of traditional and industrial cheesemaking, Slow Food’s authors take us through the processes of buying, tasting, and storing cheeses. Dictionaries of tasting terms and the language of cheeses and cheesemaking provide essential preludes for the heart of this book—descriptions of Italy’s farmhouse cheeses, traditionally made from cow’s, ewe’s, and goat’s milk.

Organized by region and accompanied by elegant color photographs, each description covers how the cheese is made and matured, along with historical and geographic nuggets.

Written by people in love with farmhouse cheeses, and with everything small, local, slow, traditional foods and what food systems represent, this is an informative and hopeful book, celebrating a rich, rural European tradition. This book will make you start packing your bags for a cheese lover’s tour of Italy.
