Home cheese making
Great book for the beginning cheese maker I have goat's and get quite a bit of milk and have been able to make some very good cheese's thanks to this book
My Grandfather and my mother used to make cheese when I was a boy growing up. I never paid any attention and never gave it a second thought. Then one day I was in South America and Ricotta came up in conversation, and it brought back the fond memories of my younger days gone by. So I set off on a course to learn how to make ricotta cheese and came across this book online and there website. My wife and I nailed it on our first try, they made it so easy a novice like myself could do great. Highly recommend!!
Great resource. Good for a novice cheese maker
I have used this to make book to make: a Parmesan, Traditional Cheddar, Swiss, and a modified Coby. There are some notes for trouble shooting, but this is a great on-the-shelf guide.
I have recently started to sample some of the cheese I made prior to purchasing the book. At that point I knew I needed the book. All the mistakes I was making were all listed prior to the first recipe. YouTube is not a solid substitution for the methods and procedures of a pro. I’m working on my next great creations with a lot more confidence than before so wish me luck. Highly recommended
Good Book - It works
First of all, Dylan and the staff are wonderful to work with. On our first order, they helped by guiding us to what we needed. Later we canceled that order and made an even bigger one! I'm glad we picked up the additional items. Our first cheese was the 30 Minute Mozzarella made from raw goats milk which actually takes about 2 hours from start to finish. We have made 4 batches so far. The recipes allow you to scale up or down easily. Looking forward to moving on to more difficult cheeses soon.
