Interesting and informative,
This review is from: Great British Cheeses (Hardcover)
This book details over 300 different cheeses of the British isles.
After an 'introduction', 'a short history of British cheese', explanations on 'how cheese is made', 'types of cheese', 'buying cheese' and 'serving cheese', the book provides individual profiles of cheeses divided into 5 distinct groups: fresh, soft, semi-soft, hard, and blue cheeses.
Each cheese is given an individual profile with a photograph of a slice, a map of the British isles to locate the provenance, indications of size, weight, shape, milk, rennet, and type.
The description gives information about the colour and the production process of the cheese, how long it is matured and details about its taste and flavour.
The book concludes with a glossary, a directory of resources, and an index.
Very good indeed.
