The brothers Kevin and Seamus Sheridan founded Sheridans Cheesemongers in 1995. Today, they are a brand name for cheese in Ireland, Europe, and the United States. Their distinctively branded crackers and biscuits are available at more than seventy retailers, such as Dean & DeLuca, Murray’s, and Zingerman’s. Together, they are a veritable cheese master class: absolutely everything you could possibly want to know about not only the great cheeses of the world but also the fascinating little handcrafted cheeses, those individual masterworks that showcase some cheese maker’s genius, and also the specialty cheeses you may not think of first but may find that you enjoy far more than some of the bigger names.
Sheridans’ Guide to Cheese is a complete guide to cheese for both novice cheese lovers and mature connoisseurs alike. There’s not much Kevin and Seamus have to say on the subject that isn’t worth hearing—or reading—and this compendium is an indispensable handbook on cheese. Inside you’ll find a country-by-country and style-by-style guide to cheeses of the world and heaps of practical advice on selecting, buying, aging, and storing cheese, as well as tasting notes to help you appreciate every kind you try. This is also an invaluable resource for assembling an ideal cheese plate, wine- and flavor-pairing notes, and even, here and there, a few useful recipes (such as a simply perfect risotto, which Seamus was taught in Italy by a parmesan maker).
