Most people I have come across in the cheese making world have heard of Debra Amrein-Boyes’ book “200 Easy Homemade Cheese Recipes”, it was one of the first books I read when I started making cheese. In September of this year an updated second edition was released with some new information including a new trouble shooting guide and a few more. It was a freezing night when the courier dropped off my package and I could not wait to start reading this new book. (more…)
Do you want to learn how to make cheese at home? Are you having problems trying to pick a book to use as your beginner book? Well keep calm and get the eBook by Gavin Webber from Littlegreencheese.com and Greeningofgavin.com, called “Keep Calm and Make Cheese: The Beginners Guide to Making Cheese at Home” (more…)
I collect information. Yes I said it I collect information. I am not a person who collects information to crush my enemies; wait I do try to crush the evil Mozzarella Monkey, but that is another story. I try to collect information about things that really interest me, nothing quite peaks my interest like the knowing that there is a new Cheese Making book on the shelves of my local library or bookstore. I usually borrow them, read them, and then decide on whether they are a “buy” or make notes and return. There have been many in the return group and only a few in the buy. I have come across my very first “Must Have” and I wanted to share it with you. The book is called “Mastering Artisan Cheesemaking: The Ultimate Guide for Home-Scale and Market Producers” by Gianaclis Caldwell (http://gianacliscaldwell.wordpress.com/)and published by Chelsea Green Publishing.
