I’ve never considered making cheese at home…I didn’t know I could….According to this WSJ article, DIY cheese is the latest craze. Seeing the headline my first thought was that the process seems tedious and intimidating. Kinda how I think about pickling (which I have yet to try).

The article led me to Claudia Lucero, the founder of Urban Cheesecraft kits in Portland (shocker). In this video produced by Etsy, she makes the process look so easy! She goes on to explain about how she started her business and sources the local milk.

You can buy her kits on Etsy and at Whole Foods to make fresh cheese in your kitchen in less than an hour. Check out her blog UrbanCheeseCraft. It’s an entertaining read and she makes the concept seem not so intimidating.
