You do not need to be scientifically trained or an accomplished cook to make cheese at home. The information here covers every aspect of cheesemaking at home, including the tools and equipment needed and basic recipes and advice on setting up a small cheese making business. Rita Ash shows just how simple it is to make cheese, and how, with a little bit of care and attention, anyone can produce delicious cheeses at home.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While cooking and gardening may sound feasible to most readers, it will be intriguing for some to learn that cheese making is a viable pursuit. Ash draws on 30 years of cheese making and teaching to write a gratifyingly approachable guide. Following an introduction to key terms and concepts, she provides recipes for different cheeses, none of which require much beyond basic ingredients, equipment, and some storage. Though not every reader will have the space or time to craft a Wensleydale or a cream cheese, all will believe that they can create something tasty and homemade. Supplemented with a good glossary and a dose of reassurance, this just might spur a new generation of home cheese makers. VERDICT Accessible, even inspiring—a good addition for readers looking to take the locavore trend a step further. [Similar to the new "Homemade Living" series (Keeping Chickens with Ashley English; Canning & Preserving with Ashley English), other titles in the "Self-Sufficiency" series include Michael Hatcher's Keeping Chickens and Penny Walsh's Spinning, Dyeing & Weaving.—Ed.]—Peter Hepburn, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago Lib.
