Economist: The Oxford Companion to Cheese

Melanie Wong | Dec 27, 201611:48 AM     4

Review of The Oxford Companion to Cheese:

" . . . Where else could you find an entry for the Monty Python television sketch, 'Cheese Shop', in which an aggrieved John Cleese eventually shoots a cheesemonger after failing to find a single piece of cheese in his shop? Non-specialist references extend into the modern era with a scholarly entry on two children’s television characters, Wallace and Gromit, and how their programme caused sales of Wensleydale to surge. Another entry is on the moon and green cheese, with a string of references to fables about the moon and cheese, from Serbia, France and contemporary America. . ."
