Step-by-step photos take kids ages 8–12 through the cheese making process, then teach them how to make 12 classic favorites, including mozzarella, feta, ricotta, and cream cheese.
Here at The Beverage People, our book reviewer was 8-year-old Henry Jackson, son of proprietors Gabe and Jane Jackson. He enjoyed the read and endorsed our sales of the book. He reported that he was able to understand the introductory discussion and explanation of the processes and even the recipes. He was excited by the pictures of the cheeses and eager to try some of the recipes - particularly when chocolate chips were involved. He struggled a little with the French terminology, so we recommend that an adult may want to help the kids in understanding those terms such as Crème Fraîche and Fromage Blanc.
A hearty helping of kitchen chemistry and math along with bits of international cheese making history add to the education. A bonus log sheet lets young cheese makers keep notes just like the pros, while punch-out labels and colorful flags will embellish homemade cheeses and global cheese platters.
Want even more info on home cheesemaking? Browse through our database of Cheesemaking Articles and Recipes for some enjoyable internet-surfing and inspiration from some of The Beverage People's collected knowledge. If you or the person you're buying for has never made cheese before, our Cheesemking Equipment and Ingredient Kits will cover all the basics.
