I brought this book for my mother, as she has been looking for recipes to make her own cheese-type products. So far, we have made cream cheese and ricotta from the book, and it was very successful. With the whey we also made the Twisted Whey-Wheat Rolls which were very nice. This was a great idea, to use some of the whey from the cream cheese making to make bread rolls - the rolls were nice and textured and very tasty. Very ingenious.
There are heaps of great recipes for cheese type products in this book, including yoghurt, sour cream, buttermilk, cream cheese, ricotta etc. And then sections of recipes using these products - I'm very keen to try the Sour Cream Raisin Pie which I've always wanted to make. My mother is very happy with this book, and is looking forward to making more recipes from it. Great value for money, heaps of nice recipes. The thing also with this book is that it makes cheese making very easy for the home cook - you don't need loads of expensive equipment, or to have to worry about what you're doing - it's all very straightforward and makes your own cheese products very accessible for any home cook - cheap, easy and most importantly, you know exactly what is in the product - no preservatives, no additives and no artificial colourings or flavourings. Definitely recommended.

Service and delivery excellent. What an interesting read, telling you how to make different cheeses at home, not to the point of challenging the parmesan cheese mafia, but nice enough and easy enough to have a go.
