- Trevor Hickman
15th April 2012
There is a lot of controversy over the history of Stilton cheese: its origins, who first made it, and who now has the rights to the name and recipe.
Trevor Hickman has delved into the National Archives to explore the story of this famous cheese. In this new book on the subject, he sets down the facts of the cheese’s origin, development and history to the present day. He explains how Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire became the centre for Stilton cheese production and emphasises its importance as a leading area of speciality food production.
