Updates and Changes:
I still have not found a mentor, but I continue to work on my project. As I think I mentioned in last week’s post, I ordered some more supplies to make cheese that should arrive soon. Once they arrive, I plan to make some cheese and bring it in to share.
Despite not having a mentor, I have been doing research. I went and got a book from the library called “Artisan Cheese Making at Home” by Mary Karlin, and I have learned a lot more about the theories behind cheesemaking, and some methods that I will be sure to employ while I make my second batch. Since my blog posts have been a bit sparse, I plan on making two more in the upcoming weeks to supplement the things I’ve already talked about, and to show off the product I’ve made. In the upcoming extra posts that I will make, I want to document the process of cheesemaking, complete with photographs and a description of everything I do and every ingredient I use.
