Cheesemongers Compendium of British and Irish Cheese
'Palmer writes with pace and passion ... Full of flavour' Sunday Times.
A Cheesemonger's Compendium introduces 150 of the finest cheeses from across the British Isles. Each cheese on Palmer's cheeseboard is accompanied by a morsel of history or a dash of folklore, a description of its flavours, and an enticing illustration. Palmer peppers his book with stories of eccentric and colourful cheesemakers and celebrates both traditional farmhouse and modern artisanal cheeses - fresh, mould-ripened, washed-rind, blue and hard. He explains how to buy your cheese like a monger, how to cut and store it, and how best to match it with drinks. The guide is completed by a brilliantly illustrated gazetteer.
