Behind every traditional type of cheese there lies a fascinating story of how it came to be. By examining the role of the cheesemaker throughout world history, and by exploring a few basic principles of cheese science and technology, Paul Kindstedt offers this uniquely focused and in-depth look at the origins and development of cheese, from prehistoric times to the present day.

The author also tells a larger story, a sweeping narrative that binds all cheeses together in a single history - one that started with the discovery of cheese-making in the Neolithic Age and that is still unfolding to this day. Cheese and Culture reconstructs that 9,000 year old story, based on the often fragmentary information that we have available. The book offers a useful lens through which to view our 21st century attitudes to cheese and towards food in general. Exhaustively researched and highly readable, this refreshingly original work will appeal to anyone who loves history, food and, especially, good cheese.
