4.6 / 5.012 ReviewsBest 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. For each recipe I read through it a few times, planned it out, and the cheese came out well. _x000D_March 18, 2014Best book on cheese making for non expertsGreat book for new cheese makers.
