Cheese lovers, listen up. The ultimate gift for the enthusiastic kitchen dweller/fromage fanatic is here. You could give the gift of cheese and feed them for the day but teach them to make their own and keep them happy for life. Created by Paul Thomas, one of the UK’s leading cheese experts, Home-Made Cheese: Artisan Cheesemaking Made Simple is the answer. This gorgeous new book demonstrates that cheesemaking is simple enough to try at home and of course enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Paul recommends you start with some of the easier dairy products including yogurt, butter, cream, crème fraiche, paneer and cottage cheese before moving on to the likes of Mozzarella, Cheddar and Camembert. Paul has thought of everything to make the process achievable, he suggests do-it yourself alternative equipment, addresses some of the issues relating to food safety in cheesemaking, the processes that influence the transformation of milk to curd and then mature cheese.
Artisan Cheesemaking Made Simple aims to provide the home cheesemaker with a broad foundation of knowledge that can be applied when trying out the delicious recipes contained within the book and encourage the reader to be confident in their cheesy endeavors.
