I’m a cheesemaker but I only made my first cheese in the spring of 2016.

I quickly fell in love with the alchemy of cheesemaking and it didn’t take long before I decided to throw in my conventional job and set up an artisanal cheese business. It’s a cliché, I know, but ever since then I’ve been on a journey into a new, exceptionally welcoming and fascinating world.

So I decided to blog about it, to record my journey for posterity and, I hope, to encourage others to try their hand at making cheese themselves. The basics are easy enough. Everything else will take a lifetime.
