About The Author :
The often cited adage "Those that can't do, teach" definitely does not apply to the work of Gianaclis Caldwell. In addition to actively managing their 70 head herd of dairy goats, Gianaclis is the cheesemaker and owner (along with her husband, Vern Caldwell) of Pholia Farm, a licensed dairy located on 24 of the 200 plus acres she grew up on in southern Oregon. Pholia is well known for its artisan, aged raw milk cheeses; classes on small-dairy, goat husbandry, and cheesemaking at all levels; and off-grid, sustainable life-style focus.
For anyone starting out in cheesemaking, this book is a MUST, esp I ally the first 141 pages which you should read so often you commit to memory! First and foremost, the recipes are true and exceptionally well written. And those first 141 pages enable you to understand why. Ph levels are imperitive to understand, as are why different types of milk, rennet, starters, etc. affect your actual cheese. My first book was Home Cheese Making by Ricki Carroll (who wrote the forward to this book), which was ok, I guess, but left out so many steps along the way and all of the scientific background that is so essential to understand to reap success. Thanks to Ms. Caldwell, I have every confidence that my cheddar and pepper jack cheeses will be perfect when they are ready post-aging. I am also now on a first-name basis with my local certified raw milk farm selling milk at $10 per gallon and worth every highly tested penny!!! Thank you, Ms. Caldwell, for a superior manual to get me started, but also to you, Ms. Carroll, for helping me to find my newest addictive habit.-G. Scott
This is an excellent work especially if you are planning to get into commercial artisan cheese making. I'm a hobby cheese maker and this book has given me a much better understanding of how cheese making works from a more technical standpoint. It has come in really handy for the use of the different cultures that are available here in the states. Excellent book for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge on cheese making and not just follow recipes.-Wayne T
