Winner of BEST COOKBOOK, IRELAND, at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards

Kevin and Seamus Sheridan first started selling cheese from a market stall in Galway over twenty years ago. As passionate advocates of local farming and champions of high quality food production, the brothers soon developed a reputation for selling the very best cheeses from around the world.

Today, the award-winning Sheridans Cheesemongers has become something of a byword for cheese, sourcing and selling the world's best cheeses to customers across the globe.

In their first book, The Sheridans' Guide to Cheese, Kevin and Seamus share their expert knowledge and invite you on a journey through the vast array of cheeses that adorn their shelves.

From the cheese peninsulas of West Cork and the cheddar caves of Somerset to the hills of Reggia Emilia, the brothers introduce us to some of the best cheesemakers in the world, revealing how their favourite cheeses are made, whilst offering heaps of practical advice on selecting, buying, aging and storing each variety of cheese.

An indispensable handbook for both novice cheeselovers and mature connoisseurs alike, The Sheridans' Guide to Cheese is a complete guide to the cheeses of the world, featuring tasting notes, wine- and flavour-pairings and delicious recipes to help you appreciate every cheese you try.

I simply can't put it down. What a gorgeous book. Long overdue ... an appreciation of the charismatic, passionate and often deliciously eccentric people who have devoted their lives to producing beautiful cheeses from the milk of their dairy herds. And who better to write this book but the Sheridan brothers.

The Sheridans Guide to Cheese is as multi-layered as any of the great
cheeses that they love so much. Along with all the practical
information that their unique expertise allows them to share, this is a
family story about the people they grew up with, their lives and their
values, also the story of the many cheesemakers who have filled the
shelves of their warehouse and the other cheese lovers who have tended
them, sold them and educated people about them. It's as much a book to read as a reference, with interesting
diversions at every turn.

book itself is also interesting in many respects. It has a rustic,
slightly higgledy piggledy tone to it that feels just right, as it's
homely and organic. The design is pleasantly old fashioned ... artfully retro. With all the warmth and the individuality of any of their beloved cheeses, this is a book to have and to give - enjoy it.

A delightful book
Sean O'Rourke, RTE Radio 1

A beautiful book, and very beautifully presented.
Irish Independent - Francis Brennan, Hotelier

A seminal tome, well-set to inspire a whole new wave of future cheesemakers.
Irish Examiner - Joe McNamee

This is a book that is rooted in Ireland but tells a story which relates to our relationship with cheese, farming and food production across the developed world. It has much that you would expect from a guide produced by these internationally renowned cheesemongers, including detailed notes on many of the world's best cheeses, ample recipes based on all types of cheeses, plenty of insight into the miracle conversion of milk into one of the most complex and diverse foods. However this book brings us much further into the world of cheesemaking than any other cheese book. It examines our relationship with the producers and the land they farm, challenging many of the preconceptions which have built up around the world of the cheesemaker and cheesemonger.

The Sheridan brothers are custodians of an ancient craft. I love going into their stores, there is a deep awakening when I taste their great cheeses. this book will make people not only want to eat great cheese but get back into the countryside and get their fingers into the soil.
