Okay I haven’t made any cheese yet but I went to a cheesemaking presentation today at a How To Cook, a store on the Sunshine Coast of Australia that offers cooking and cake decorating classes. Sasha from Mad Millie, a New Zealand company that’s started started selling their products in in our area. Mad Millie makes cheesemaking kits that allow anyone to make tasty cheese in their own kitchen.
Beginners should start with fairly simple cheese like feta or ricotta (or both). I can’t wait to give it a try.
Here’s a video by Mad Millie showing how easy it is to make feta cheese at home. It IS time consuming but I know I’ll have a big smile on my face when I serve my first cheese to friends.
It does look fairly simple, doesn’t it? The most difficult part is getting the milk to the proper temperature and I figure I can read. Let me know if you’ve made cheese at home and would recommend it to others.
