A Year in Cheese comes from the team behind famous artisan cheese shop Androuet, which was established in Paris in 1909 and opened in fashionable Spitalfields in London in 2009. The fromagerie and restaurant Androuet specialises in seasonal cheese from France, Britain and beyond and supplies cheese to many acclaimed restaurants, including Duck & Waffle and Terroirs. Just like fruit, veg and meat, cheese is seasonal. Seasonal cheese is about listening to nature, understanding the grazing cycle of the animal that’s being milked, knowing what they’re grazing on at which time of year, and recognizing optimal maturing times. This beautiful and inventive cookbook introduces the idea of seasonal cheese, starting with a brief introduction to which cheeses are at their prime at which time of year, followed by dozens of exceptional recipes each using an easy-to-find seasonal cheese.
