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.

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.

The problem with this book is the confusion you run into when you go to the website. There, you find a completely different recipe for the same cheese (sometimes two or three more), no explanations offered. Which is the best, or more recent one and what's wrong with the earlier one? Those are things I'd like to know before investing time and money.

Also, I don't know why a cheese recipe should be different from other food recipes, and given how widely cheese recipes vary, I don't understand why there isn't more of a description of each particular recipe. How is the texture? Is the cheese sharp? Sweet? Milky? And so on.

On the plus side, I give five stars to their store! It has an excellent selection, good prices, shipping is quick and reasonable. I live in Canada and their shipping charges are lower than the Canadian suppliers'!

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.

Format: Paperback
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.
