About this deal

Angus has captured it all so beautifully in his photos and words and Lilly’s illustrations are perfect as always. 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.

They are a friendly bunch these cheese folk, and I’m sure they would be happy to chat about their cheeses. I loved that these cheeses were not only a wonderful, delicious food product but also an instrument to express heritage, tradition and history. I want people to see Our Isles and be inspired themselves, to conserve the natural environment in a way that makes them happy and fulfilled.

With beautiful photography, hearty cheese based recipes, and a new insight into each of these wonderful artisans, this will be treasured by anyone with a love of cheese, the countryside and traditional cooking.

The following words extracted from longer poems and accompanying photography attempt to capture the immense beauty, fragility and mysteriousness of our Isles.This is a beautiful book celebrating iconic British cheesemakers that transports you across the British Isles with stunning photography and stories of culture, history and families. Overall, "A Portrait of British Cheese" is an essential read for anyone wanting to dive deeper into the world of traditional British Cheese. This book highlights the wonderful diversity of people, scales and skills which characterise and bind together the emergent community of UK artisan cheese makers. The countryside is where I find most of my inspiration for writing, photographing, curating and, well, eating! Farming forms the building blocks of food, and in terms of cheese, it’s the foundation for determining the quality of milk used for cheesemaking.
