I was getting into the science of it all and while reading about the technology of cheese making can sometimes cloud the Artisan appeal of why we do it in the first place. I suppose if absolute consistency is required - the supermarket is just down the road , but that isn't why I do it.
For the sheer love of it all....
You get a lttle basic knowledge and then infuse your character with every cheese you create. They may not all be terrific crowd-pleasers, but it's something you have crafted and transfixed. I get a deep sense of satsfaction when I finish making a cheese and put it in the cave to age. For me, it signifies hope
and a promise for something truly special in the future. With everything going crazy around the world nowadays, it's especially encouraging to have some
control over something. Maybe it's just the illusion of control. Whatever. For now, it's enough.
