Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Hurst, who's been making cheese at home for over 20 years, adds to a wave of recent books that address cheese making at home, part of a bigger trend linking learning and appreciation for the craft of food with budgeting. She provides a good selection of achievable recipes, such as for chèvre and halloumi, which further benefit from the many handsome illustrations. The distribution of some important information to later chapters and placement of profiles of cheese makers in the middle of explanatory sections undermine the instructional function of the book and break the flow. Verdict Compared to other titles like Jody Farnham and Marc Druart's The Joy of Cheesemaking, this guide is not as rigorous and places less emphasis on the science behind making cheese at home. Purchase only where cheese making is popular.—Peter Hepburn, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago (Library Journal)

I responded readily to Janet’s book because it is so friendly, simple to follow, attractive to the eye, well researched and has a very personal touch. It’s like sitting down with her and, over a cup of coffee and a plate of hot out of the oven scones, having her share all of these wonderful experiences. Her passion for cheese is evident.

    The Best Cheese Making Book on the Market!

    Homemade Cheese : Recipes for 50 cheeses from Artisan Cheesemakers

    By Janet Hurst
    Published by Voyageur Press
    Source: Review Copy

    One of the best cheese making books on the market! Absolutely beautiful book that shows the artistry of cheesemaking.
    I loved the interviews with the artisans and farmers. Their insight into cheese making, and advice is invaluable. The photos of their farms, and animals and the pure joy they emitted in being a cheesemaker showed the hobby side of this art.

    The recipes included step by step directions and often photos for the beginning cheesemaker. Additional information on the hows and whys of cheesemaking helped to answer any questions as well. The recipes ranged from the simple cheeses like ricotta, mozzarella and cottage cheese and advanced through to the finer aged cheeses of Gruyere, Blue cheese and Drunken Goat Cheese.

    I personally loved the emphasis on goat milk and goat cheeses in the book. It included dairies of cows, but many of the interviewed persons owned goat farms. I felt as a goat dairy myself this helped to focus the milk and cheese products more on the styles and types that I would make.

    Resources are included in the back of the book on places to purchase your supplies. I will be using this book again and again and highly recommend it to all my goat farming friends.

    I received a copy of this book from Voyageur Press in exchange for an honest review.
