It's hard to think of a more universally beloved food than cheese. But cheese lovers know there's more to the world of cheese than grilled cheese, parmesan on salads, and a plate of cheese and crackers.

There are over a thousand different types of cheeses produced worldwide, offering a wide variety of flavors, textures, and aromas. All of them are unique depending on the type of milk used, the aging process, pasteurization, herbs and spices added, and more. Even the biggest cheese lover has a lot to learn about the age-old art of cheese. How is cheese made? What makes certain cheeses so stinky? What is raw cheese? Why do some cheeses melt better than others? How should one store cheese? And why are some cheeses banned by the FDA?

Within the pages of this pocket-sized guide, you'll find information, how-tos, and trivia for cheese lovers at all levels. Experts and newbies alike will learn:

    Highlights from Cheese History
    Types of Cheese
    Perfect Cheese Pairings
    Essential Cheese Gadgets
