Book recommendation for beginner cheesemaking:
- NonnieMuss May 12, 2013 01:42 PM
I'm really interested in learning to make cheese and I'm looking for a recommendation for a decent, not-too-spendy book that will get me started. Nothing too terribly technical - I'm just a regular person with a regular kitchen, but I know there are several varieties I could probably make at home. Can anyone give me some guidance on this? Thanks!
No joy? I'm reduced to replying to my own question? (Frownie face).
Okay, so I've narrowed it down to three:
200 Easy Homemade Cheese Recipes by Debra Amrein-Boyes
Home Cheesemaking by Ricki Carroll
Complete Idiot's Guide to Cheesemaking by James Leverentz
Has anyone tried any of these books? Is anyone out there?
Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian Cookbook has a small section on easy cheeses with input from Ricki Carroll.
