I think every beginning cheesemaker should start with this book. It makes it easy to take the plunge and get started. If you read the beginning chapters of the book, you have a better understanding of what you are doing in the recipes, and why they work. Also, it contains many more recipes than other "beginner" cheesemaking books and it will keep you busy for a very long time.

This is my absolutely MUST HAVE definitive cheesemaking "bible". It contains everything you need to know and so far has answered every question I have come up with.



I would urge all novice (and seasoned) home fromagers get this and read it from cover to cover!

This book is extremely well written and layed out so that someone with little to no experience can learn to make delicious cheese from there own kitchen. I had learned that mozzarella was eaten fresh, so with a little research I purchased this book and was makeing aged farmhouse cheddar within a few weeks. I have since made traditional cheddar that turned out amazing, I have made a beautiful 2 lbs block of swiss and am currently aging a block of Parmesan. All because of one book "Home Cheese Making" thank you Ricki Carroll for taking the time to share such an amazing and lost art with me and rest of the world.

This is an excellent resource for a beginner cheesemaker. I have used it to make cheddar, gouda, fromage blanc, and parmeasan so far, all with good success. I appreciate the insider information that helps me understand the intricacies of cheesemaking. A must for any beginner!

I am not normally one to mark inside a book but this book is getting margin marks, underlines and general used-edness. Love the idea of making cheese in my kitchen and I see it as not a possibility but reality now that I am in the know.

I love you, cheese, and Ricki!

From: Illinois
I have now used this book three or four times. The best part of the recipes is that they correctly state the amount of ingredients. After that there is a tendency to leave out necessary steps, possibly assuming a beginning cheese maker knows what they are. This is very annoying. This book is only useful if compared to other step-by-step information on how to make a particular cheese.

Indispensable!

Not so great

I was hoping for a little more, but this reads like most amateur recipes you will find on internet forums. There is no technical information, like WHY we are doing this step or that step and why the results might be if you vary it this way or that way, no PH targets, pressing weights are only give in "pounds" (which is a useless measure not knowing the area of your mold), sometimes just bad information (like how long to brine your gouda for). The result is that you are going to get wildly varying results and there is simply not enough information here to make good/consistent cheese without a lot of trial and error or learning from other sources. Save you money and consult the forums.

I purchased this book for my husband because he expressed an interest in cheesemaking. We got milk from our local dairy, and he made a farmers cheese that was absolutely delicious, and incredibly easy! It walks you through the steps with easy to follow directions and pictures. We love it!

I love this book. Almost every cheese I have tried making has come from this book. The directions are usually easy to follow, although I have had an issue with ambiguous directions on the rare occasion. The background information is vital for any cheesemaker.
