We can’t wait to welcome back expert Cheesemonger Ned Palmer, to celebrate the publication of his brand new book.
A Cheesemonger’s Compendium introduces 150 of the finest cheeses from across the British Isles. It is a perfect companion for all of us hooked by Ned Palmer’s acclaimed Cheesemonger’s History.
Each cheese on Palmer’s cheeseboard is accompanied by a morsel of history or a dash of folklore, a description of its flavours, and an enticing illustration. Palmer peppers his book with stories of eccentric and colourful cheesemakers and celebrates both traditional farmhouse and modern artisanal cheeses – fresh, mould-ripened, washed-rind, blue and hard.
He explains how to buy your cheese like a monger, how to cut and store it, and how best to match it with drinks. The guide is completed by a brilliantly illustrated gazetteer.
There will be samples of cheese to taste on the night.
*Copies of A Cheesemonger’s Compendium of British & Irish Cheese will be available to purchase on the night for the special price of £12.99
