I am so excited to share with you today my new book – Simple Cheesemaking!

I have shared several cheesemaking recipes here on Cultured Palate but now, after working for months, the ebook is ready!

You can now have the recipes for cultured dairy products, soft cheeses (Mozzarella, Mascarpone…) and hard cheeses (Monterey Jack, Parmesan, Swiss…) that I have found to produce consistent results all in one place.

Plus, you have information on the basics of the process, ingredients, supplies, a list of suppliers that I use personally and even a troubleshooting guide for help with common problems during the process.


You might wonder how I began making cheese. Well, it started when we moved to west Texas in 2008 to begin our vineyard. The first couple of years were very difficult financially – grapevines take three years to produce the first crop!

In trying to cut the budget and save money during that time, I noticed that a large portion of our monthly grocery expense was spent on dairy products. At this time, I was a vegetarian and dairy was a major source of protein. I began to put the pen to the paper and realized that we could keep a family milk cow for a bit less than what I was spending monthly on dairy and have way more dairy products to boot.

But, the only way that would be more economical was if I began making cheeses. So, my journey in learning to make cheese began!

There has been a lot of trial and error – successes and failures. I want to help shorten the learning curve for you! In this book, I have taken the guess work out of the cheesemaking process. Starting with the basics of the process, Simple Cheesemaking explains the cheese-maker’s vocabulary, equipment and ingredients, as well as giving you 32 recipes.


Simple Cheesemaking brings the lost art of cheesemaking to life in an easy to understand, easy to follow book. Progressing through the book in complexity, you will learn skills and techniques to make you a successful cheese maker!

Whether  you homestead, have a family milk cow, milk goats or buy your milk, you can be a successful cheese maker right in your own kitchen!

You will be surprised at just how easy the process of cheese making is! And, once you taste the homemade goodness of cheese, you will not want to settle for the store-bought versions again.
