The Maker:

"After researching and learning lots about making food from local ingredients, I was inspired to make my own cheese. When I tried to find local cheese making supplies though, I had no luck. With the knowledge that people have been making cheese for thousands of years with simple recipes and without fancy equipment, I persevered. After endless (still learning!) late nights of weeding through lots of info., I understood that there are many, many fresh cheeses that do not require aging and that can be made at home with little or no special equipment. I tried many, shared them with friends at gatherings and enjoyed the oohs, ahhs and questions. I thought more people would be happy to have this skill, so I decided to make it easier for others to get started making and enjoying their own homemade cheese too. Making fresh cheeses is a simple skill that was lost in the past few decades of quantity over quality and I’d like to help it get back into kitchens- even city kitchens where we don’t have space for bulky equipment (or cows- though in Portland we can have goats in our garages and backyards, yay!). I strive to make the kits fail-proof and affordable so that novices can get started. There’s a low investment in time and cost but high reward in self-sufficiency and quality!"
