4.0 out of 5 stars Over 200 years of Stilton cheese making in text/photos/ maps, 18 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The History of Stilton Cheese (Best of British in Old Photographs) (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!
