- "In Cheese: A Global History, Andrew Dalby travels easily from the sheep's- and goat's-milk cheeses of The Odyssey to the white Wensleydale preferred by Wallace and Gromit -- and that's just along the literary and fictional trails. Dalby also identifies the rightful place of cheese in different cultures." Bonnie S. Benwick A tasting menu of savory dishes FOOD BOOK ROUNDUP November 18, 2009 Washington Post
