Say cheese

Why not make your own cheese to wow your guests at your next wine-tasting evening

Some of us will have suffered a slug of Grandad’s home-made plum wine at some point or another and resolved to leave the viticulture to the experts. Cheesemaking though, now that’s a different story. Once considered a specialist art, suburban cheesemaking has taken off over the last year or so, and pulling out a home-crafted cheese board is a sure-fire way to impress your guests.

Now Jean Mansfield, who along with partner Dave runs a farm in Waihi, has published a fabulous new book, How to make Cheese with Jean Mansfield*. Written off the back of her 15 years of cheese-making experience and seven years teaching farmhouse cheese workshops, this fabulous step-by-step guide will talk you through the steps to follow to make 50 different artisan cheeses from a basic parmesan right through to different types of blue.

We have two copies of this book to give away.
