3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but there's better out there. June 21 2003
By A Customer
After much experience with wine and beermaking, I decided to try making my own cheese. Well, it is defiantely not a trivial matter. We are not making pasta here... This book was not bad, and helped me understand the process of making cheese but the actual recipes were confusing and hard to follow. If you have never made cheese before, try another book. There are better ones out there by Shane Sokol & Barbara Ciletti for beginners. In summary: a nice book if you want some insight into the cheesemaking process, but on the "how-to" side, the book is of limited use once you have gone past your first steps.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of life's greatest pleasures Feb. 19 2004
I have read this book very carefully from cover to cover and find the information very accurate and easy to follow. It takes you in a very easy step by step manner through this most ancient art. Start small by trying the easiest recipes and making the cheeses you like and then as you start to become better, you can slowly try your own little variations.
Using this book, I have made Cheddars, Goudas and even Blue cheese that has won my Bed and Breakfast quite a reputation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very confusing, but nice recipes. Jan. 7 2004
By A Customer
Quite a few recipes, many good, but as a prior reviewer stated, this book is confusing, especially with the hard cheeses. If you have never done this before, try a beginner's book like the one by Shane Sokol. That one has fewer recipes, but is wonderful for the beginner.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it at all Dec 14 2003
This book is so impractical, I'm very glad I didn't pay for it. A very essential part of making hard cheese is a means to provide pressure, a press. This author refers to the use of different pounds of pressure, but gives little or no advice on how to achieve that pressure. For instance, she'll say, "20 pounds of pressure for 30 minutes". How??
There is a primitive diagram of a cheese press that involves the use of a tree stump, but no real directions. It's very frustrating. The recipes are OK, but I'm sure you could find similar recipes elsewhere. This book is a waste of time if you're just starting out.
