She does sell cheese making supplies, however her book is wonderful .... It's a pleasure to read and she has included stories and recipes of other cheese makers endeavors of their journeys...which I thoroughly enjoy trying.
Dont be put off by the negative reviews, search the Internet, most ppl on the cheese making band wagon sell her kits...lol ... I know I bgt one from Wisconsin and she is in Massachusetts ... I compared their supplies prices with hers and hers were cheaper...most all google searches bring you back to Ricki...
Excellent book on cheese making, practice makes perfect with anything you attempt...my family and I appreciate being introduced to the art of cheese making by Ricki and hope to visit her farm and participate in an actual class someday!
I don't buy yogurt, ricotta, or cream cheese any more. My friends inquire when the next samples are coming their way. It's so good.
This book was a great survey of all different types of cheeses, and how they are made, with recipes for each. I definitely feel that from the instructions in this book I will be able to make some cheese next week when I get some basic supplies.
Considering how expensive imported cheeses are, I think it'll be a good project. Some of the cheeses requires 8+ weeks of aging, but you can make soft cheeses overnight and it only takes 30 minutes to make fresh mozzarella! You have complete control over your ingredients so you can make it using organic ingredients if you want. Considering organic fresh mozzarella is over $8/lb at Whole Foods, I think it might be worth the 30 minutes. Hopefully, I'll have the technique perfected in time for my summer tomato harvest.
If you want to learn how to make easy bread to go with your cheese, I highly recommend "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" by Jeff Herzberg and Zoe Francois. I just made my first loaf an hour ago and my husband and I just finished it off.
Next...I'll have to make some wine.
