It has been a while since I have made some cheese. I am having withdrawals! Making cheese is now a part of who I am and it just feels great when making it, but even better when eating it. I feel like I have resurrected some ancient art that has been lost by modern man. Well, when you think of it like that, I suppose that is exactly what I have done. Hopefully, once my older kids have tasted my harder cheeses, they will want to learn how to make them as well. I would love to pass this skill down to them.
Anyway, today I bought two cheese making books, thanks to a $10 discount voucher given to me by Moo from Moo I Made it! Thanks Moo.
The first one I chose was “Home Cheese Making – Recipes for 75 homemade cheeses”, by Ricki Carroll.
The other is “Making Artisan Cheese: Fifty Fine Cheeses That You Can Make in Your Own Kitchen,” by Tim Smith.
I hope that my expectations are met, because I can’t wait to get stuck in to making some more yummy cheeses. Of course I will have to wait until Kim is on her feet again, but she is healing well and should be independent again in a few weeks. So, once I read these books, I will let you know which is the better one and if they are worthwhile investing in a copy. My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures!
