One-Hour Cheese: Ricotta, Mozzarella, Chèvre, Paneer - Even Burrata. Fresh and Simple Cheeses You Can Make in an Hour or Less!

  • It s a DIY cook's dream come true: It's pizza night, and you've made not only the crust and sauce but the mozzarella, too! Or you're whipping up quesadillas for a snack, using your homemade Triple Pepper Hack. Or the dinner party's in high gear and out comes the cheese plate and yes, you've made all the cheeses on it! Even better you made them all earlier that day. In a cookbook whose results seem like magic but whose recipes and instructions are specific, easy-to-follow, and foolproof, Claudia Lucero shows step by step with every step photographed exactly how to make sixteen fresh cheeses at home, using easily available ingredients and tools, in an hour or less. The approach is basic and based on thousands of years of cheesemaking wisdom: Heat milk, add coagulant, drain, salt, and press. Simple variations produce delicious results across three categories Creamy and Spreadable, Firm and Chewy, and Melty and Gooey. And just as delicious, the author shows the best ways to serve them, recipes included: Squeaky Pasta Primavera, Mozzarella Kebab Party, and Curry in a Hurry Lettuce Wraps.

    One-House Cheese is a friendly, unintimidating, absolute beginner's guide to making cheese at home that includes everything you need to know to make 16 original cheeses in less than 60 minutes each, plus recipes for serving suggestions, accompaniments for building your own fresh cheese plate, and 3 bonus DIY Dairy essentials (yogurt, butter, and ghee). Instructions are fully illustrated with step-by-step color photos (think How to Grill or Magic) to yield maximum, foolproof results. The one-hour cheeses are separated into three categories: Creamy and Spreadable (Meyer Lemon Ricotta, Fromage Facile, French Kisses, Classic Cottage Cheese), Firm and Crumbly (Curried Paneer, Honeyed Toast Cheese, Chivo Fresco, Ale-Washed Squeakies), and Melty and Chewy (Raw Mozzarella, Favorite Melty Mozzarella, Triple Pepper Hack, Pizza Filata, Chipotle Lime Oaxaca, Brown Butter Burrata, Haloumi? Halou-you!, Smoky Cheater). One-House Cheese demands little investment in the way of time or money, but yields results in high quality.
