I've always liked cheese, like many have.
But my real interest in cheesemaking started after I came across the Pustotnik family, a family of cheesemakers making delicious cheeses in Poljanska Dolina, Slovenia. They've been making cheese since 1988 and just recently they've opened Sirnica, a centre where you can find cheesemaking boutique, explore the world of cheese or attend one of their workshops. Stop by if you're ever in the area.
I was searching for cheesemaking supplies to buy in Slovenia but it turned out I could only buy large quantities of ingredients, large enough for a dairy farm, not for making cheese at home. I mistakenly thought that nowadays when DIY and local products are extremely popular and hip, there would be a wide range of cheesemaking kits on the market, even in Slovenia.
And that's how my first cheesemaking kit came from Portland, USA.
At my first attempt to make cheese I was being really careful, strictly following the instructions, constantly checking milk temperature and repeatedly reading through the recipe.
It wasn't as much fun as later on when I realised, that apart from some important steps and directions you need to keep an eye on, it's really all about experimenting - using the milk you like best, adding herbs, nuts, seeds, even fruit.
And it's one of the best things to watch how the cheese is being made while the curds are forming and after a bit of cooling there it is, freshly made cheese for you to enjoy.
