As we get closer to Thanksgiving I think about all the things I’m thankful for and one of them has to be that I am not lactose intolerant! I love me some cheese. My heart goes out to those of you who have to venture carefully into that territory.
I figured cheese making would be a good week to come on the heels of beer brewing. They do go together nicely and should be ready about the same time. I also now know how to make home made pasta to go along nicely with the mozzarella I’ll be making.
This week was inspired by a thoughtful wedding gift from some of our good friends, Steve and Steph who live in Portland, another great foodie city. They sent us this wonderfully simple cheese making kit from Urban Cheesecraft, a venture started by a couple who could not find cheese making supplies locally in Portland (that is a huge surprise).
They’ve done a ton of research that has gone into simple, affordable kits they sell online. If this goes well, I definitely want to try the goat cheese kit.
This week I also hope to visit a farm or two locally to check out the cheese making going on around these parts in Boulder.
