Book Description

15 Sep 2011

Just a century ago, cheese was still a relatively regional and European phenomenon, and cheese making techniques were limited by climate, geography, and equipment. But modern technology along with the recent artisanal renaissance has opened up the diverse, time-honored, and dynamic world of cheese to enthusiasts willing to take its humble fundamentals—milk, starters, coagulants, and salt—and transform them into complex edibles. 

Artisan Cheese Making at Home is the most ambitious and comprehensive guide to home cheese making, filled with easy-to-follow instructions for making mouthwatering cheese and dairy items. Renowned cooking instructor Mary Karlin has spent years working alongside the country’s most passionate artisan cheese producers—cooking, creating, and learning the nuances of their trade. She presents her findings in this lavishly illustrated guide, which features more than eighty recipes for a diverse range of cheeses: from quick and satisfying Mascarpone and Queso Blanco to cultured products like Crème Fraîche and Yogurt to flavorful selections like Saffron-Infused Manchego, Irish-Style Cheddar, and Bloomy Blue Log Chèvre. 

Artisan Cheese Making at Home begins with a primer covering milks, starters, cultures, natural coagulants, and bacteria—everything the beginner needs to get started. The heart of the book is a master class in home cheese making: building basic skills with fresh cheeses like ricotta and working up to developing and aging complex mold-ripened cheeses. Also covered are techniques and equipment, including drying, pressing, and brining, as well as molds and ripening boxes. Last but not least, there is a full chapter on cooking with cheese that includes more than twenty globally-influenced recipes featuring the finished cheeses, such as Goat Cheese and Chive Fallen Soufflés with Herb-Citrus Vinaigrette and Blue Cheese, Bacon, and Pear Galette. 

Offering an approachable exploration of the alchemy of this extraordinary food, Artisan Cheese Making at Home proves that hand-crafting cheese is not only achievable, but also a fascinating and rewarding process.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not international! 13 Mar 2013
By Suzanne
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A beautiful book, but only useful for North Americans (perhaps only Californians, even)! All of the recipes use homogenized, pasteurized milk rather than raw, and then you have to add back in calcium chloride. All of the temperatures are given in fahrenheit only (no celsius, and my thermometer is celsius only), and there are no recipes for making your own starters, just in case you live someplace where there is no fancy cheese making supply shop, but only a standard farmer's consortium with basic supplies. I started making cheese using Rita Ash's "Cheesemaking Self Sufficiency" book, which is excellent, but pretty basic, and wanted to take my skills further. Although I did get some good ideas from this book (using dried herbs, honey, wine), I found it a bit too "sanitized" (In Ash's book she says to use your clean hands to stir the milk, for example, while this one suggests a whisk), and, if you really had to go out and buy, or mail order, all the equipment the author says you need (which you do not really need!) you'd be better off buying your cheese already made,from a shop.

Fantastic array of recipes for a very wide range of different types of cheese. Also contains some stunning and inspiring photography. Much the best book for the amateur cheesemaker - and I've read a few!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 10 Dec 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this book.Its my pride and joy. I am slowly progressing and working my way through the recipes and advancing in the art of cheese making. I had a little issue in making one of the cheeses . I wasn't sure if for the stilton I was to hang the curds in a bag in the whey.Looked up on you tube and no it was to be suspended over the top. So occassonally the book could be more specific so if attempting the cheese recipe for the first time you know exactly what to do. Got to say though it is pretty detailed and well worth investing in.The measurements are in cups gallons and quarts so be prepared to covert (not difficult).Front of the book explains the cheese making' lingo 'and has a lovely page on what went wrong and how to avoid in the future.

By sue
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
fab book, but much more advanced than I thought. It's brilliant for taking you through the stages and loads of gourmet cheeses to try. i think i have been a little ambitious in buying this as my first foray into cheese making - but cookery is a difficult as you want to make it and i think i'll 'grow' into this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Whey 13 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book after a couple of false starts trying to find a book which had enough detail about both the process of making cheese and some of the basic science of what was happening. This book filled that gap perfectly. Lots of information, lots of detailed recipes and helpful troubleshooting advice when things don't turn out as you planned. I have already made some of the cheeses and plan to try many more, a really great resource.
Its also a beautiful book with detailed pictures of how some of the hand made cheeses should turn out. If you are really interested in making cheese at home this is the book you need.

Format:Hardcover
Lovely looking book, some excellent recipes. It was bought as a present so I didn't spend ages leafing through its crisp, clean, beautifully printed pages. My friend seemed to be very pleased (though we are yet to try any homemade cheese from her :( ).
