About the Author
Juliet Harbutt, author of The World Cheese Book, is the world's most highly respected cheese expert. Born in New Zealand, she moved to Britain in 1984 and founded Jeroboams wine and cheese shop, reputably one of Britain's finest, offering more than 250 French and British artisan cheeses. She also designed and ran seminars for retailers, wholesalers, and many Relais & Châteaux Hotels throughout Britain. Her expertise was recognized by the French, who made her a member of the Guilde Internationale des Fromagers, Confrérie de Saint-Uguzon. In July 1991, she sold her interest in Jeroboams to concentrate on writing, consultancy, and lecturing.
