Publisher Comments:

How a British accountant went on sabbatical to chase a cheese dream, and ended up France's most talented cheesemaker

Matt Feroze had a rather unusual dream: to become a cheesemonger in the highly competitive French cheese industry. To accomplish this, however, he would have to make huge sacrifices: give up a good job as an accountant in England and say goodbye to his friends and family, moving to a country in which he struggled with the language and knew next to nothing about the profession he wished to enter. Yet only a year later he was being crowned Champion de France des Fromagers, beating veteran French cheesemongers to the title and opening up a wealth of new opportunities for himself. Here is the remarkable story of how he pulled off such an incredible feat. This inspirational tale of how one man sacrificed so much to realize his goal proves that, with enough determination, it is possible to achieve anything you desire.

About the Author

Matt Feroze worked as an accountant in London until, in 2011, he gave it up to explore France and his passion for cheese.
