This blog is being published to invite all enthusiastic cheese making hobbyists to explore the amazing world of artisan cheeses made in your home kitchen. Through a number of years of teaching and writing about cheese making there appeared a need for more information on how to make world-class cheeses at home as well as creating a forum for exchanging the successes and challenges of cheese making from hobbyists. That is my goal for this blog.
As topics of interest arise from readers of my book Artisan Cheese Making at Home: Techniques and Recipes for Mastering World-Class Cheeses, and students in my cheese making classes, I will be sharing cheese making experiences here and hope to hear from you about yours.
The book includes over 100 cheese making recipes which are old time favorites, contemporary contributions from trend-setting American cheese makers, and my recipes inspired by my favorite benchmark cheeses. The companion web site, www.artisancheesemakingathome.com and this blog will be an on-going evolution of my work, your contributions, and a place for us to share. I hope you’ll join me on this magical journey.
