“Farrell-Kingsley’s thorough but unintimidating recipe instructions will enable any reader to make a variety of dairy products, and many home cooks will be eager to try them.”
“You won’t churn out any award-winning artisanal brie, but you could make a darn fine mozzarella. Kathy Farrell-Kingsley is ready to walk you through the latter (as well as a variety of other easy soft cheese and dairy products) in her recent book, “The Home Creamery.” This isn’t the book for serious cheesemakers (as in, those who hope to ditch the corporate life for a dairy farm in Vermont), but rather those who enjoy playing in the kitchen or want bragging rights at their next dinner party. The recipes are simple, easy to follow and would be great projects to do with the kids. Cheeses include cream cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta, goat cheese, mozzarella and marscapone. The book also includes recipes for using the cheeses. Farrell-Kingsley also explains how to make yogurt, kefir, butter, creme fraiche and sour cream.”
“Imagine crème fraiche that’s really fresh. If you’re up for a really fringy pursuit, you can learn to make your own dairy products – butter, yogurt, sour cream, cheeses – from Kathy Ferrell-Kingsley’s new book, The Home Creamery. With this guide, you’re biggest challenge might be finding a source for milk-curdling rennet.”
