"Fun, fascinating, and beautifully written… If you've ever found yourself lost in a cheese shop, Madame Fromage is the perfect guide to help you find your way to cheese nirvana." 
—Patrick McGuigan, author of The Philosophy of Cheese

"A worldly romp—the ultimate ‘how to enjoy cheese’ tome."
—Allison Hooper, cofounder, Vermont Creamery

"Tenaya Darlington takes us on a creative journey that captivates and invigorates the palate. She has turned the sometimes daunting world of cheese into something fun and exciting!"
—Joe Beddia, author of Pizza Camp

"Madame Fromage has been my cheese guru for years—I am one of her “curd nerds”—and Tenaya's new book may be her best yet. Informative, thorough, with gorgeous illustrations. But the real thrill here is the wonderful writing, the way Tenaya’s descriptions bring these cheeses to life. This is cheese writing on the level with great wine or travel writing. No one writes about cheese better than Tenaya does."
—Jason Wilson, author of Godforsaken Grapes and Boozehound, and creator of the Everyday Drinking newsletter
