Publishers Text

Every cheese tells a story, whether it's a fresh young goat's cheese or a big beefy eighteen-month-old cheddar. The flavour speaks to you about the place it was made, the season of its making and the craft of its maker. And each style of cheese reflects the culture of the people who first made it, and their place in history. This book tells the story of the British Isles, their people and their cheeses, from prehistoric Celts to postmodern foodies, and explains how key moments and major currents in our history are embodied within our food. You will also learn how to find the best cheeses today, discover how they are made and meet the eccentric cast of characters who make them. You'll discover what to drink with them and how to relish the history and flavour of every bite. It's a cheesemonger's odyssey, a celebration of history, tradition and innovation guaranteed to leave you hungry for more.
