Description

Factors like the health of the soil and the welfare and diet of the animals are things to consider in this case. An exploration of the people, processes, stories and histories behind the incredible cheese made in the British Isles, A Portrait of British Cheese is a beautiful, thoughtful book that charts 30 farmhouse cheesemakers around the UK. With the recent challenges faced by small cheesemakers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this book is a timely reminder of the importance of supporting local, artisanal cheesemakers.

I always think there should be a GCSE in food provenance or the like to help our younger generations really know where and how our food is produced. From Suffolk’s Baron Bigod to Brefu Bach sheep's milk cheese from Snowdonia, Birditt’s delicious volume guides the reader though the story of British cheese through essays, photos and irresistible recipes.Cheese has always been an integral part of my life, from growing up, stuffed in packed lunches, or in recent times, melted on god knows what!

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Through interviews, stories, recipes and photography, the book celebrates how British cheese is profoundly connected to the land, farm animals and people involved in making it. Through a selection of thirty cheesemakers (including Caws Teifi Cheese ) and their cheeses, I hope to show how British artisan cheese is profoundly connected to the land, farm animals and people involved in making it. Angus D Birditt is a young Author, Photographar and advocate for the thriving traditions of rural life, farming and Cheesemaking in the British Isles. I loved that these cheeses were not only a wonderful, delicious food product but also an instrument to express heritage, tradition and history. However, as much as I moan about the production side of things, it opened up a world of food and drink as we visited local farmers markets and national food festivals selling our products.

Full of personal stories, warmth and admiration, Angus teases out just what makes British cheese so special.Two cheesemakers who exemplifies this are Patrick and Becky Holden from Holden Farm Dairy in West Wales, who make Hafod cheese, a Welsh Cheddar. Birditt, the book takes readers on a journey through the stories, people, and landscapes dedicated to artisan and farmhouse cheeses.
