Christmas Starter Ideas To Incorporate Your Home Made Cheese
It’s coming up close to Christmas and this year the family Christmas celebrations are happening at my place. We’re a month out and I need to start thinking about what I’m going to be serving up on the day. I know that I want to be able to incorporate the wonderful cheeses that I’ve been making this year, and what better way to do that than in the pre-dinner snacks or starters?
The world of home cheese making can be very overwhelming as a beginner. All the terms can get quite confusing and the processes are no easier. At least, that’s how I felt when I first started making cheese.
That’s why I decided to create Curd Nerd; so that other beginners to home cheese making had a resource to turn to when the times got tough. Read more
Wow! Curd-Nerd has just recently reached 400 (plus) subscribers!
I’m super excited that we have so many keen home cheese makers out there. And I’m so appreciative that so many of you have chosen to sign up to Curd-Nerd, and allow me to wander into your inbox every month (or so).
When I started this website approximately 18 months ago, I really didn’t know if anyone would ever read it, or find it useful. All I knew was that I wanted to share information on home cheese making and spread the word on how easy and enjoyable this hobby can be. Read more
There have been a few changes around the Curd-Nerd household lately. One of which has allowed me to spend a little more time on my home cheese making.
I recently left my full time job and have been spending the last few weeks settling into a new routine. I have to say it has been quite strange after 20 years in the corporate world, aiming for the top of the ladder but it’s also exciting to be following a shift in priorities. Read more
Today’s post is a short and sweet one, but hopefully also helpful in adding to your home cheese making repertoire.
Curd-Nerd has added 3 new soft cheese recipes to the recipe list for you to try your cheese making hand at.
We have also made a small change to the menu so that the Soft Cheese Recipes and the Hard Cheese Recipes have been split out into separate menus. This should make it quicker to find the recipes you want.
The latest recipes to be added include:
Chevré– a fresh goat’s milk cheese which is extremely simple to make
Cottage Cheese – extremely versatile and more delicious than the watery store bought stuff
Brie – known as ‘The Queen of Cheese’ this one is challenging, but well worth mastering
We’ll be adding even more recipes soon but if there are any specific cheese recipes you want to try out in the meantime, please let us know in the comments below and we’ll do our best to add it straight away.
Good luck with these new recipes and please, ask any questions that you have.
