Most DIY cheesemaking books are hard to follow, complicated, and confusing, and call for the use of packaged freeze-dried cultures, chemical additives, and expensive cheesemaking equipment. For though bread baking has its sourdough, brewing its lambic ales, and pickling its wild fermentation, standard Western cheesemaking practice today is decidedly unnatural. In The Outlaw Cheesemaker, David Asher practices and preaches a traditional, but increasingly countercultural, way of making cheese--one that is natural and intuitive, grounded in ecological principles and biological science. This book encourages home and small-scale commercial cheesemakers to take a different approach by showing them: * How to source good milk, including raw milk; * How to keep their own bacterial starter cultures and fungal ripening cultures; * How make their own rennet--and how to make good cheese without it; * How to avoid the use of plastic equipment and chemical additives; and * How to use appropriate technologies. Introductory chapters explore and explain the basic elements of cheese: milk, cultures, rennet, salt, tools, and the cheese cave. The fourteen chapters that follow each examine a particular class of cheese, from kefir and paneer to washed-rind and alpine styles, offering specific recipes and handling advice. The techniques presented are direct and thorough, fully illustrated with hand-drawn diagrams and triptych photos that show the transformation of cheeses in a comparative and dynamic fashion.

From wine and beer to bread and cheese: many of our best-loved foods and drinks are the products of fermentation. In Adventures in Bubbles and Brine, fermentation enthusiast Philip Moscovitch takes us on a tour of Nova Scotian ferments, and introduces us to the people who have taken this food trend to heart. Enjoy the fascinating stories from their history and bookmark the recipes they share for you to try at home. Fermenting may be popular now, but its roots in Nova Scotia go back centuries. Early French settlers grew grapes and apples for wine and cider while German immigrants brought their sauerkrautmaking traditions. And now, Nova Scotians are embracing a new wave of flavours, including spicy kimchi, bitter craft beers, artisanal cheeses and the addictively sour taste of kombucha. Featuring photos, anecdotes and easy-to-follow recipes, Adventures in Bubbles and Brine digs into the origin of these foods, while delving into the science of fermentation and gut health, and tells you everything you need to know to start fermenting safely at home.

Nothing beats a really good cheese. These days you can buy great dairy products locally, made using high-quality ingredients and with a unique flavour of their own. The next step is to try your hand at making yoghurt, labneh, mozzarella and even delicious matured cheeses yourself. The River Cottage ethos is all about knowing the whole story behind what you put on the table; and as Steven Lamb explains in this thorough, accessible guide, the key ingredient is milk. He shows you exactly what to do to take it from its liquid form to a wide range of dairy products, from clotted cream to a washed-rind cheese. There are also plenty of gorgeous recipes that make the most of cheese and other dairy goods – as you'd hope, they involve such pleasures as dunking carbs into a pot of melty cheese; biting down on a delicate cheese wafer; or whipping up the best ever cheesecake. With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and plenty of helpful photographs, this book is the indispensable guide to crafting and enjoying cheese and other dairy products.
