It’s a lot of fun, although the aging process is a bit tricky. So far my favorite cheese has been the fresh mozzarella but farmhouse cheddar is a close second.

If you are interested in cheesemaking you should google cheesepalooza, that’s how we got into it! So many helpful bloggers making cheese together.

And the Wensleydale factory is fun. If you ever get the chance….

It’s so easy, and we feel lost when we run out without another batch on reserve!

I’ve never tried to make cheese but I do make yogurt regularly and it’s very tasty.

Growing up we would make Portuguese style goats cheese. It’s incredible. My parents grew up with a little house on the prairie lifestyle so they always made/grew/farmed their own everything, including the cheese.

My husband and I plan to move to europe in a couple years. He wants to be a cheese making apprentice ;)

Its so easy and oh so worth it. :) The hint of lemon is wonderful in a spinach/mushroom lasagne. Nothing like it. We also make ricotta tarts and pies for deserts. Wonderful.
Beer kits are always in our home up here in Atlantic Canada – where alcohol is expensive. Hubby loves making it and sharing it with friends.

Your description of cheese and the cheese making process is poetry all on its own :) I’m going to have to take up cheese making with my kids…. thanks for the delightful inspiration.

What was it like to visit the Wensleydale factory? And have you tried yak cheese? I wonder if you’d be allergic to that. I had a really delicious yak cheese in Boston a few years ago – strong, rich, and incredibly robust.

That sounds so fun. He must have loved it. I know a girl who worked for years at Murray’s Cheese… and it was one of those things that I always found so tempting I wanted to quit grad school to do, too. I’m afraid my passion doesn’t measure up to quite that level, but my hunger does, so maybe that evens it out.

Seriously. I have 4 farms within 5 minutes of my house that make fresh mozzarella, goat cheese, ricotta etc etc. You would be in heaven here. And yes…burrata is amazing.

But when my husband was finishing his undergrad, I got a job in the direct marketing department of the WSU Creamery selling…cheese. Watching the cheese being produced was fascinating. I learned a lot (even if I wasn’t consuming the product), which has made family trips to the official Wensleydale factory in Hawes, North Yorkshire, a lot more educational. My cow milk allergy does mean that there’s a world out there that I can’t partake of, but I completely enjoy making mozzarella & ricotta for my kids. Such a satisfying way to use discounted milk that’s on the sell-quick shelf at the market.

It makes incredible pizzas. And my little girls have fun doing it with me (and eating it).

It delights me. I LOVE cheese as well, though my husband and his family love it even more. When we first moved to New York City, my husband did a “cheese internship” at Stinky Cheese in Brooklyn just to learn all he could about the cheese world. He quickly realized there were people who’s entire life revolved around finding the world’s best cheeses and although he loved to eat it, he probably didn’t have that same level of passion. We did get to try some very, very stinky cheeses and expensive cured meats ($50+ lb.). It was fun!
