  • 3

I am trying to pick one up as a gift for the holidays. This is my second posting does anyone have any suggestions. He is a pretty experienced cook but has never made cheese before.

  1. There's really amazing set of webpages on cheesemaking, that can really augment any print book that I've seen to date:

    The classic "at home" print book is:

    "Home Cheese Making" by Ricki Carroll. It's available, along with all sorts of supplies, at:

    http://www.cheesemaking.com/

    1. I second the last suggestion on going to: www.cheesemaking.com.
      Just got their catalog in the mail a few days ago. Instead of buying a book...why not buy a cheese making kit. They offer several different types. Everything from goat cheese, basic hard cheeses, to a combo of mozzarella & ricotta cheese. Prices range from $24.95 to $69.95. I plan on making some and giving it as Christmas gifts.
