From the first cheese, dating to 5000 BC, food journalist Patrick McGuigan travels through Feta’s relation to ancient faiths, the influence of monks on Munster, the rise of Roquefort and the global trade of Gouda.

Fabulous selection of local products. Great staff who took the time to be really helpful, and offered tasting of the produce. Nothing was too much trouble. Great range of products – wish I had had more time to browse. I can’t wait to return.
