In a winter break from cheesemaking duties, Francis Gimblett set himself a target of 100 days to visit his 100 top British cheesemakers in order to interview them and taste and photograph their cheeses for the guide. The cost of the undertaking meant he had to camp on the roof tent of his Land Rover, exposing him to sub-zero temperatures, floods and a hurricane, at one point requiring an army rescue in the Brecon Beacons!   The guide gives all the information you need to buy the best British cheeses and help keep the British artisan cheese industry going in 2021 and beyond.
