Fascinating look at the history of cheesemaking in Britain from Neolithic times through to the present. Some very interesting things I didn’t know about. I was particularly intrigued to read about the Cheese War Of 1766, when Nottingham residents forcibly prevented the exporting of cheese to Lincolnshire. I did not know cheese could arouse such strong passions. Great book for any cheese lover.
