David Asher Rotsztain & Natural Cheesemaking
« on: January 07, 2015, 04:16:15 PM »
Hi folks. Just wondering if anyone has heard of David Asher Rotsztain from The Black Sheep School of Cheesemaking? Or attended one of his classes? I recently came across his website and was quite intrigued by his more natural approach to cheesemaking and reduced reliance on industrial moulds/starters. Just curious if anyone takes this approach to their cheesemaking?

Anyway, I see he has a book out in July this year: http://thewayofcheese.com/2014/12/30/the-art-of-natural-cheesemaking/ Given that it has a foreward by Sandor Ellix Katz (author of The Art of Fermentation, which is a truly wonderful book), I think I'll be picking this one up when it's released.

Hi Stuart,
I've exchanged a few emails with David. I am also trying to source my supplies locally. When I discovered that P. roqueforti was all around me, I became convinced that it's possible, at least to some degree.
