It's all about cheese

It's all about cheese


I will add more books as I find them.

A must-have for any aspiring cheesemaker is Home Cheese Making: Recipes for 75 Delicious Cheeses. Ricki Carroll, Queen of Cheese, shows in detail and easy to read steps how to transform milk into cheese, including soft cheese, medium-hard cheese, blue cheese, hard cheese, yogurt cheese. The book also contains an informative section about cultures, additives, colourings, aging cheese, and more.

A more general book on sustainable living, but with a nice, informative cheesemaking section, is The Encyclopedia of Country Living.

Anyone who gets sucked in so utterly and completely to abandon momentarily the watching of Sense and Senbility in favour of cheese is in my eyes made of win:

But when we tasted the Stilton, our conversation about the cheese, the costumes, the adaptability of the novel in general and Austen in particular stopped. Awe enveloped us. Speech abandoned us. We were Stiltoned.

And this is only the beginning. About Paris, Eric LeMay says:

We courted Eros, and if you've ever caught the seminal whiff of a Saint-Marcellin or relished the cunnilingual mush of a Rocamadour, you know that cheese celebrates Eros in all its meanings.

And it's not just waxing rhapsodic about cheese most skilfully that really caught my attention; he unfolds his knowledge about cheese bit by bit, visits dairies all over in his strive to find yet another tasty cheese while popping interesting tidbits of information in a most casual manner. This book is a must-read for any lover of cheese and language.
