Cheddar Gorge: A Book of English Cheeses:HarperCollins. ePub edition
Where can you read about a monstrous cheese big enough to hold a girl of 13 inside? Or that the invention of the bicycle directly, and poorly, impacted sales of cheddar? Or that some of the first cheese makers hid gold coins inside their wheels of dairy as a sales tool?Brethren, the writer calls you this because he hopes that you are ‘cheese-minded’ like himself.This classic and charming book, a timeless love letter to English cheeses, was first published in 1937, newly rediscovered. It is a treasure trove of wonderful anecdotes including the tale of the monstrous cheese big enough to hold a 13-year-old inside, the Stilton that purred like a cat and the famous cheese maker in Manchester who selected which Cheshire cheese to sell based on where the mice had been nibbling, ‘as they were the best judges of a good cheese’.Sir John Squire, a notable journalist of the time, collected together ‘a galaxy of talent’, with the aim of making this ‘one of the most delightful and entertaining gift books that has ever been published’. Each of the distinguished 10 contributors champion an individual cheese, setting forward their passionate and compelling arguments, celebrating the differences and delights of each type. Through their explorations, the chequered beauties of the English landscape unfolds.It will certainly whet the appetite for English cheese, for that is ultimately what matters most, as, after all, ‘the only way to learn about cheese is to eat it’. 1.

Rivals, lovers, a dark plot, a suicide mission...the perfect recipe for marriage? Deyro is brash. Cocky. Arrogant. He´s also one of the best Dragonborn Ranger in Los Angeles. His skill with a blade is almost unparalleled - and he knows it. Alexis survived a horribly abusive childhood to become a skilled fighter. A fierce hunter. A warrior.

They have a tense partnership - one that is often marked by clashes and angry words. Their bedroom chemistry is almost as intense and angry as their partnership on the battlefield. But when the Council of Kings discovers the illegal alliance between humans and Dragonborn, the pair is asked to do the unthinkable - travel to Chondelai and become political assassins.
