Review; The Modern Cheesemaker: Making and Cooking with Cheeses at Home by Morgan McGlynn
Description from Goodreads
The Modern Cheesemaker shows you how to make 18 cheeses, from the rich and gooey, to the wonderfully stinky, and all the cheeseboard favourites – including simple, fresh cheeses such as mozzarella and ricotta, working up to salty and versatile halloumi, feta and paneer, perfect, melting Swiss cheese, through to aged Cheddar and Brie.
Starting from the very basics of the making process, with a guide to milk types and the seasonal nature of cheese, The Modern Cheesemaker will deepen your understanding of this essential ingredient and its production.
The equipment you will need is thoroughly explained and readily available and by following the easy-to-use instructions and Morgan McGlynn’s expert tips, you’ll soon learn how to become your own artisan cheesemaker. To reap the rewards of your hard work, there are over 40 recipes for delicious cheese-based dishes to make, along with flavouring cheese and suggested accompaniments.
My Thoughts on the Book
This is a beautiful book with recipes both for the actual cheeses and what to make with the cheeses, whether it's Paneer Stuffed Peppers, Cheese and Garlic Scones or other yummy treats. I also really loved the photos and I'm tempted to try several recipes.
