Another point: if you want to make a good system for cheese ripening, you'll need more info, for example , home sausage making or fermented sausage from marianski brother give info on the subject.
Mary really sets steps out clearly and the book is packed with recipes that I cannot wait to get to.
From the first couple of chapters we have made the
-cultured butter and buttermilk
with success and we are looking forward to the aged cheeses coming up. Would highly recommend this book to cheese newbies.
If you love making bread then you'll probably love making cheese. Give it a try!
I likes the charts explaining different cultures, and that many processes are illustrated. They start slow with young cheeses, but they also explore cultured butter, yogurt or crème fraîche. Even if those are not cheeses, they use the same ingredients are are related to cheese and I really enjoyed to learn those were easily accessible.
When you become more experimented, you can switch to the next chapter, which are intermediate cheeses, exploring stretched-curd, semisoft, firm and hard cheeses. Then after, they get to bloomy-rind and surface-rippened cheeses, washed-rind, smeared-rind and blue cheeses. You will have nothing to envy all those artisan cheese shops, at a much more affordable price, with a bonus of being proud of your achievement. There is a little something for everyone in this book, and they really make everything look easy and manageable.
The last chapter covers cooking with cheese. It's kind of short, but there are some classics and some more inventive combos, including some frozen desserts, which I found interesting. Bonus for having a good cheese fondue reference, since most people are lazy and get the packets. Nothing like a really homemade cheese pot !

Some recipes work out well, others don`t. Beautifully illustrated, but the recipes are a little over thought. There are easier recipes elsewhere for the same thing.Published on June 7 2013 by Mitchell James Morse
