Format:Paperback
Stilton cheese is perhaps one of the finest foods ever produced. It is packed with photos, maps and illustrations (all from the author's collection, apparently) showing the people that make Stilton cheese by hand and the villages where the process began. the reader is able to see how sales of Stilton encouraged growth along the Great North Road -- the direct route from London to Edinburgh. Illustrations show stage coaches "stopping by" for possibly cheese and rest. Also, an engraving of the Islington Dairy show in 1878, in which hundreds of Stiltons were used to build a replica of Cleopatra's Needle. Queen Victoria was so impressed she bought all of the cheeses used to build this amazing display. All photos are black and white and could use some updating. The book is a little haphazard in its layout but I think that's why it continues to be enjoyable -- you find something new everytime you leaf through!

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT! BRILLIANT! BRILLIANT! 6 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a must read! The rollercoaster ride of suspense begins with the opening page, and does not end until you have reached the back cover. Be captivated by the photos of the Stilton process, including the cheese "rubbing up" shots. Swoon at the photos of the workers as they go through the cheese making process. I guarantee with each turn of the page comes adventure!
I have read this book many times over, and give it two thumbs up. William Shakespeare, eat your heart out!
