"A heart-warming tale of determination and passion that may inspire readers to chase their dreams, or reach for the cheese and crackers."
France magazine

Did you know that I wrote a book? It's about the my journey from London accountant to (ahem) French champion cheese monger.

Some might say that it's the perfect gift for the cheese lover in your life...

It's available at all good book stores and online retailers, but if you'd like a signed version please get in touch at


  1. I finished reading your book yesterday and I want to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I think it gives a very interesting account of your unusual choice of career path in a little know industry (to me) and to top it off by becoming the Champion de France des Fromagers was a tremendous achievement. I look forward to reading your second book in due course.

  2. A few months ago, I spotted your book in a book shop in Paris. Englishness, France, and cheese, three things I love in one book, how could I resist? I finished reading it recently and wanted to tell you how much I loved it. Your journey is simply amazing, your courage and talent admirable. I loved every single page of The Cheese and I (and every single page made me hungry!). Thank you, Matt, for this brilliant tale. I'm looking forward to reading more from you soon!

    1. Thank you so much. I'm really glad that you enjoyed it!

  3. Really enjoyed your book! We are huge cheese fans and have been far more adventurous since reading the cheese and I trying other cheeses on your recommendations. Please let me know when your next book is out and also are you doing any cheese tasting evenings in London.
