  • THE ART OF NATURAL CHEESEMAKING

    Most DIY cheesemaking books are hard to follow, complicated and confusing, and call for the use of packaged freeze-dried cultures, chemical additives and expensive cheesemaking equipment. For though bread baking has its sourdough, brewing its lambic ales, and pickling its wild fermentation, standard Western cheesemaking practice today is decidedly unnatural. In The Art of Natural Cheesemaking, David Asher practices and preaches a traditional, but increasingly countercultural, way of making cheese—one that is natural and intuitive, grounded in ecological principles and biological science.

  • THE ART OF PLANT-BASED CHEESEMAKING

This book aims to change all that and introduce this new and evolving craft into the kitchens of the world.

    Written by a pioneering plant-based cheesemaker who draws deep from her well of experience, The Art of Plant-Based Cheesemaking is a clear, highly practical guide that extends traditional cheesemaking methods into the realm of plant-based media as a substitute for dairy.
