His story of transformation from an accountant at the National Audit Office to a world of fromage is absorbing. He has done what so many dream of doing...upping sticks and following his true ambition, which in his case is a vision of cheese. What his cholesterol is like I have no idea but his loving descriptions of the seemingly endless varieties of cheese got my taste buds tingling. Like any journey we learn a lot on the way, on how to care for, present and nurture a cheese. They are not merely lumps of curdled milk to him, they are living breathing organisms, his babies which, at times, he reluctantly sent off to market. An enjoyable education and a fascinating journey.
I wish him well in all his cheesy endeavours and hope he had put his accountancy days behind him, except for using his skills to keep on top of the cheese budget. This book is also written very well and has been expertly edited. I just wish my home county cheese , Lancashire! was better appreciated in France!
I am concerned for his cholesterol level though.....
It finishes with a great crescendo on the palate, at the Concours National des Fromagers. I won't spoil the surprise but again like a good Brillat-Savarin it leaves you wanting more!
Goes well with red wine, grapes and a cracker (and maybe even a small piece of fourme de Montbrison).
I wish him and Jen continued success and happiness in there cheesy life together!
