Thoughtful gifts for curious people

The Philosophy of Cheese


| /

Follow the history of cheese from the very first production, dated to 5000 BC, through Feta’s relationship to ancient faiths and the influence of monks on Munster, to the rise of Roquefort and the global trade of Gouda. Discover how the household staple of Cheddar stands as a symbol for industrialisation, and what Rogue River Blue can tell us about the artisan cheese renaissance happening in the US today.

Alongside surprising stories of much-loved cheeses, this book will teach you how best to store your cheese, how to pair it with alcohol for an exquisite tasting and how to create the cheeseboard of your dreams. This is the perfect gift for cheese slice lovers and artisan cheese connoisseurs alike.
