The Cheesemaker's Apprentice: Make Your Own Cheese

All Images by Leela Cyd for Cheesemaker's Apprentice
One of the best accompaniments to a fine cup of tea is a mini cheeseboard. A little slice of something hard and salty, a dollop of soft ricotta with honey and chunk of a funky blue and I'm in heaven. Agreed? Add a cookie and you've got that sumptuous sweet and savory thing HAPPENING. Might I suggest some reading material while you get leisurely?

Last Autumn, Sasha Davies, David Bleckmann and I were busy each weekend photographing the cheeses David was creating and aging in his home! Sasha was expertly interviewing the finest artisan cheesemakers all over the world and dishing on overall best cheese-making practices. Together, we were creating the cookbook Sasha authored and has just come out: The Cheesemaker's Apprentice. The book has recipes for easy to make cheeses, helpful tips and inspiring conversations with cheese gurus.

And if you're in Portland this coming week, we are having a party to celebrate the release of our little cheese baby at Sasha's new winery and eatery, Cyril's. Join us December 5th to crack a big cheddar wheel and support the book.
