I unfortunately didn't buy this book first and it almost ruined me for cheesemaking at home. I found that other books were just too intimidating. Not this one. Ricki holds your hand and helps you "Just Do It." This book comes highly recommended from me.
Super helpful book. I am a beginning cheese maker and have found this book to be immensely useful. There are so many good recipes inside of cheeses that my family regularly eats. From brie to blue cheese, Jarlsberg-style and cheddar; this book is great for the home cheese maker who loves lots of variety!
this book is essential for making cheese. very well done, easy to follow
I'm enjoying digging into the book. The Introduction provides clear and helpful information, and the recipes are easy to follow. A great new reference. So far so good.
I received this book as a gift this year after using another fine book to get started and trying a bunch of recipes from the web site. I have a new favorite book for home cheesemaking. "Home Cheesemaking" really lays out the processes and tools in the best way. The history is always interesting to me and there's an abundance of recipes and tips. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to try making cheese.
