Goal: learn about and make my own dairy products

I am a big dairy fan.

I love cheese, I could eat it every day. (Maybe I will – there is always a cheese course whenever we eat in France.)

I love to bake with yoghurt but also enjoy it with stewed fruits or accompanying the many Persian dishes that my Mother makes.

And who could resist delicious bread smeared with salted butter, or tender, buttered vegetables such as asparagus or green beans?

For my birthday last year Shake bought me¬†Ashley English’s book “Home Dairy”.
Not only would it make economic sense to be able to make our own, but I’m sure it will be lots of fun too!

I haven’t yet read too much of the book, but from what I have seen so far I think it will be a great guide and is also full of lots of lovely looking recipes – Strawberry, Chevre and Balsamic Ice Cream? Yes please!

Again, once we are settled in our new home I will keep you updated with my progress.

My parents have friends who keep goats so I’m already looking forward to homemade goats cheese, honey and my darling Shake’s sourdough bread with lots of ground black pepper! (We first tasted this wonderful combination here on our anniversary last year)

Bake
