Editorial Reviews

Pacific Northwest Cheese Project blog
[Review of previous edition:] What sets this book apart is that Amrein-Boyes is a professional cheesemaker. She's the genius behind The Farm House Natural Cheeses, one of British Columbia's most outstanding artisan cheesemakers. This is important information to know, because it tells you that the author knows what she's talking about...the recipes are written from a cheesemaker's perspective rather than a chef's or home cook's perspective... Helpful troubleshooting tips something I've not seen before in a home cheesemaking book will aid in the diagnosis of problems as they come up...This is one of the best cheesemaking books I've come across. Amrein-Boyes conveys the complexity and rigor of the practice of cheesemaking, while at the same time making the craft accessible to the masses.
