Subtitle Making and cooking with cheeses at home
Morgan McGlynn, expert cheesemaker, owner of the Muswell Hill Cheese Shop and resident cheese expert on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch brings you this complete and comprehensive guide to making cheeses.
The Modern Cheesemaker shows you how to make 18 cheeses, from the rich and gooey, to the wonderfully stinky, and all the cheeseboard favourites – including simple, fresh cheeses such as mozzarella and ricotta, working up to salty and versatile halloumi, feta and paneer, perfect, melting Swiss cheese, through to aged Cheddar and Brie.
Starting from the very basics of the making process, with a guide to milk types and the seasonal nature of cheese, The Modern Cheesemaker will deepen your understanding of this essential ingredient and its production.
The equipment you will need is thoroughly explained and readily available and by following the easy-to-use instructions and Morgan McGlynn’s expert tips, you’ll soon learn how to become your own artisan cheesemaker.
To reap the rewards of your hard work, there are also over 40 recipes for delicious cheese-based dishes to make, along with guides to flavouring cheese and suggested accompaniments to make the most of flavour pairings.
‘From the first time I met Morgan I knew she was a special talent. From making, storing and ageing to tasting, slicing and hunting out new cheeses, there seems to be nothing she doesn’t know.’ Simon Rimmer
