I haven't made my own cheese. Yet. But as a cheese-eater and a part-time cheesemonger, this book has really helped my understanding of cheese. Each chapter opens with an overview which details scientific and historic details for a particular type of cheese. This book is excellent at explaining how cheese is made. A warning to people who long to jump right in, most of the recipes require specific cultures, bacterias, rennets or starters ... you won't be able to make them with what you have on hand. ( )

The best. This book started me on a new phase of my life! I now enjoy planning which cheese I will be making during my free time. ( )

This is THE book on home cheese making. I've looked around for others, but most of them are outdated and require large amounts of milk. Mentioned in "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle." ( )

Great book. I have made the mozzerella and just ordered cultures to make cream cheese plus a couple of other soft cheeses. Cheesemaking is great fun - like a science experiment.

My wife has made numerous fabulous cheeses using this book, which has become the dominant reference for this purpose in our kitchen. Very good. ( )

Those of us who remember our first attempts at bread making look back with an indulgent smile upon the bowl of sticky, disobedient dough that clung to everything it touched and defied our inexperienced hands at every turn.
