Tristan and Libby, sharing their cheese-making knowledge (photo via Mikey).

I was lucky enough to get a lesson in cheesemaking from Tristan and Libby, authors of the Whittled Down blog. A gallon of milk and a few other ingredients makes a pound of cheese, and you can go from milk to mozzarella in a couple of days. Check out their cheese-making posts here, and learn much more at at their highly-recommended favorite cheesiest of sites: Fankhauser’s Cheese Page.
