Sorry I forgot to introduce myself before starting to post! How rude
I'm Sam and I live on the tiny island of Jersey, the home of the Jersey cow.
This looks like a great forum with tons of excellent information. I look forward to learning and sharing.
I also enjoy smoking food and run a small smokehouse business on the side. I've grown chillies over the last 7 years or so.
So cheese, smoking and chillies... There's definitely a tasty product in there somewhere!
I've only made one "cheese" so far, a Queso Blanco (attached). Thoroughly enjoyed making and eating so I can't wait to try some different cultured cheeses very soon!
