Who loves cheese? Well, being a self-confessed curd nerd, I certainly can’t get enough of making this amazing food. Not only do I love making my own cheese, but I also enjoy sharing my creations with family and friends whenever I get the chance.

So, as I am new here, please join me fortnightly as I share cheese making recipes, tips, and video tutorials about the art of making cheese at home.

I have produced cheese as a hobby regularly since 2009, so I thought it would be practical to share with some valuable tips that I have learnt along the way in my first post for MOTHER EARTH NEWS.

These five cheese making tips have served me well during my journey!

Tip #1 - Cleanliness

Firstly and most importantly is cleanliness. The area that you intend on making your cheese, and your tools that you make your cheese with, must be spotlessly clean and sanitized. I cannot stress this point enough.

Hi, Gavin, I love your cheese book that I bought. I did notice that you don't check the PH in any of the recipes--why not?
