Food + hospitality photographer, Ellen Silverman, spent ten days in cheese heaven creating the imagery for Liz Thorpe's "The Book of Cheese: The Essential Guide to Discovering Cheeses You'll Love". Together with prop stylist Bette Blau and food stylist Eugene Jho, she photographed over 150 types of cheeses.
Liz is known as the “countries leading expert on cheese” and has devised a simple system for understanding cheese types which she calls Gateways. She takes basic types of cheese that we all know, for example - cheddar, brie, parmesan, etc. and shows you how to expand you choices within each category using the familiar as a jumping off point. As a lover of cheese shooting this book satisfied my cheese cravings every day! - Ellen Silverman
