I recorded a great cheese making podcast episode last night, where I talked about all things milky. Yes, milk is one of the topics that most home cheesemakers need a little more information because not everyone has access to fresh raw milk straight from their own backyard herd. That stuff in the store is confusing.
I discuss the common types of processing that milk can be subject to before it arrives nicely packaged in the fridge section of your store.
The episode also features a news item about Bruny Island Cheese Co, which you may has seen on the TV show Gourmet Farmer on SBS. Nick Haddow is a well deserved winner, as are all artisan cheese makers!
Jean Michel from Nice, France dropped me a line with a couple of questions about microfiltered milk, and Tangela asks about home made cheese presses.
All in all, an entertaining episode.
