"Ever since I was a child I've always been obsessed with cheese. I remember going down to South Philadelphia to Di Bruno Bros. and picking out provolone with my grandfather. These days, there's a lot more than provolone out there, and it's great to see that it's still Di Bruno Bros. forging ahead, helping people understand cheese. Whether it's variety, history, technique, or flavor combinations...this book has it all. I've relied on these guys for my whole life...and it just got easier for the rest of the world!"
Chef and restaurateur Marc Vetri
"Full of authoritative and engaging advice on how to use cheese that should appeal to all levels of knowledge...portraits so luscious, you can practically feel the creaminess of each blue wedge melt on your tongue. I can smell the piquant perspiration of that well-aged Testun al Barolo. More important, Darlington's prose brings it all to life."
"This book has it all--history, family, and a working encyclopedia of cheese."
Country Lines Magazine
"A must-have for anyone aiming to craft the ideal cheese plate, find the perfect drink pairing, or bring the atmosphere of the Italian Market Di Bruno Bros. to his or her kitchen."
