About The Book
Say you love cheese and anyone within earshot will agree, because from Ricotta to Havarti and Gouda to Brie, cheese is quite simply amazing. But when it comes to making your own, it can be trickier than you’d think to get started.
Lifetime cheese lover Elena Santogade felt this way when she taught herself about cheese making in her Brooklyn kitchen more than 10 years ago. As her hobby gained steam, Elena started running cheese making classes out of her apartment. Now, a full-time cheese professional, Elena has dedicated herself to creating cheese making recipes specifically with the beginner in mind.
Elena’s first-hand knowledge of the pitfalls and successes of a beginner cheese maker has armed her with the tried and true knowledge you’ll find in The Beginner’s Guide to Cheese Making. With the easy, step-by-step cheese making recipes specifically designed for beginners, you’ll be making the fresh, tasty cheeses that you love so much in no time.
At the beginning of each chapter in the book I've included a “Make Sheet Template” specific to the style of cheesemaking addressed in the subsequent chapter. I want readers to take these templates and truly use them…use and amend them until your own recipes hardly resemble mine!
