Katie Thear was first taught how to make traditional cheeses and dairy products by her mother in rural Wales.

She taught biology and Rural Studies prior to acquiring technical experience of modern dairy practice at a commercial dairy.

With her husband David, she ran a smallholding where she regularly produced a wide range of dairy products.

Visits to dairies in Britain, France, Holland and the USA have added to her researches, making this one of the most comprehensive and practical books available on dairying.
