Vermont is well-known for its cheese, but how many Vermonters have actually attempted to make their own? The authors of “The Joy of Cheesemaking” say it’s not as hard as you think, and you can do it in your own kitchen.
Jody Farnham and Marc Druart of the Vermont Institute for Artisan Cheese have written a step-by-step guide to making cheese.
"The Joy of Cheesemaking" also offers a comprehensive look at how milk can become so many different kinds of cheese, and many recipes that put the finished product to work.
VPR’s Peter Biello joined Farnham and Druart in Farnham’s mother’s kitchen in South Burlington to learn first hand the joy of cheesemaking.
