My cheese is the talk of the town!!! I have had several gatherings and sharing my goat cheese with my guests is part of the experience of being out on my farm. I love it when people enjoy the chèvre that I make. Everyone treats it like such a delicacy. Snd it is, however it’s shamefully easy to make. When I ask, “Would you like to make some cheese to take home?” Of course the answer is always “Yes.” It is a fun and easy process to make Chèvre. New England Cheese Company provides me with everything that I need to make the perfect cheese to serve my guests. I knew absolutely nothing about cheesemaking when I started… But now thanks to New England Cheese Company I can look like an expert and teach others to do the same. I highly recommend New England Cheese Company to whoever wants to get started or whoever would like to enhance their craft of making cheese.
I followed the recipe in the book and made my first batch of mozzarella! Clear directions with guidance for various challenges. I really enjoy meeting cheese makers from around the world! It’s a great resource for all things cheese.
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
