Might as well introduce myself in this thread as we're from the same part of the world.
I've been lurking around this forum for a while, picking up some great info. I've just come around to making my first cheese, a simple queso blanco with some sundried tomatoes and basil which I pressed for a few hours. It wasn't great right from the start, but after a couple of days in the fridge it developed a quite nice taste for a simple cheese. One thing is for sure though, I'm hooked! I've ordered lots of molds, starter cultures etc, and I've set a goal of making at least 50 different types of cheese before next christmas, we'll see how it goes, but I'm having so much fun with this it's all I can think of nowdays.
