Oh Man, no way! Really? Well, pour yourself a HUGE glass of your homemade wine, sit down and brace yourself for the upcoming newsflash.......
I am SO far away from a pro that it's a wonder I can even spell the word. I mess up
, I'm stubborn about following directions
(as in I don't), I fall into neglectful cheese parent mode too often
, I'm lackadaisical about sanitizing pots and pans
(because after all, they didn't have bleach for much of the history of cheese and hey, even running water is recent) and many, many other silly, stupid or lazy transgressions in my cheese making. Do I make good cheese most of the time in spite of myself? Well, yes.
A cheese to you, for giving a voice to us less exacting cheese makers
My philosophy for making cheese is a lot like yours. I make cheese for 2 reason's'
I like to eat cheese & I enjoy making cheese.
Thank you from us less than then perfect practitioner's
