Her books have received positive reviews, including the following endorsement by James Mellgren in Gourmet Retailer, who describes The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Cheeses of the World as:

“a very readable and informative reference book that should be a welcome addition to any serious cheese library. A new cheese book is always a good thing, especially one that is so up-to-date and so celebratory of American artisanal cheeses.  All in all, this is perhaps the most practical cheese book, and certainly the most current, to come out in a long while. It will help take much of the mystery out of understanding, selecting and enjoying cheese for the average consumer, which, after all, will be a great boon for cheesemongers as well.
