Save your self a few bad cheese episodes and read this book before making cheese.January 8, 2014Best of the cheese making booksI looked at several books on cheese making and this is the best of the lot. It doesn't sip anything and teaches you why you need to do things (meaning don't skip a step or short change yourself). It take s awhile to read through everything but I learned a lot.
