I love this book. It is my cheese bible and has taught me so much. We have made the most delicious Fromage Blanc, Chevre, Cheddar, Queso Fresco(my favorite easy pressed cheese), Ricotta and aim to try more difficult cheeses this year now that the goats are in milk. Directions are easy enough for my 14yr old daughter to follow. This book goes above basic instructions with little boxes filled with a variety of wisdom from cheesemakers and full explanations of what the ingredients are and their purpose(I appreciate this). I have read through several other popular cheesemaking books, but this one is by far the easiest format to follow and gives the most practical, understandable advice.
