I love my homemade cheese. it takes a while to cook but that is the longest part. I made goat cheese last week. I took it to a party and it was a hit.


Soooo GOOD, so far...

This was a bday present for my husband and so far he's only tried making mozzarella, but it turned out great. Can't wait to try more cheeses.

I purchase a deluxe kit for each of my daughters. They met at our house and made their first cheese batch. We were surprised at the ease and short time required. Two of them used the cheese for supper that evening (stuffed shells, pizza)

I purchased the cheese kit for my daughter and I to try and make cheese together. I always look for ways to let my children experience how things are made and this hit the mark wonderfully!
The cheese was not only very easy to make but also delicious. We all felt very successful eating it! It was a great family activity but would also make for a unique gift!!

The kit was a great hit. Was purchased for mothers day present from the kids. My wife has wanted to make cheese for so long and now with this kits simple instructions and ingredients she is making cheese like crazy. Mmm lucky me:) we are making cheese together and having a blast not to mention the yummy fruits of our labor.


Fun to make and not that difficult after all.

I bought the deluxe kit because I couldn't decide which smaller kit to try. I wanted to make all the different kinds of cheese. So far, I have only attempted the mozzarella. It turned out somewhere between mozzarella and ricotta, and tasted terrific. I put Italian herb blend mixed into the cheese, and formed little balls with it. Then, I put the balls in olive oil with some more herbs. Friends raved about it. One friend took some home and froze them, and said they were fine after defrosting. I also put some in an omelete. Very tasty. I just sent my son a Mozzarella/Ricotta kit for his birthday. Can't wait to hear how he does with it. I live at 6300 feet, which may have an impact on my success. I used Trader Joes regular milk, not organic, or anything fancy.


You have to try this!

I just made my first batch of whole milk easy to make, and the results are wonderfully decadent! I am looking forward to experimenting with flavorings in the next batch.

The Urban Cheesecraft Story

Urban Cheesecraft - DIY Cheese Kits

Cheese Making 101

When Claudia Lucero set out to try her hand at cheesemaking, she was surprised at how difficult it was to find supplies and overwhelmed by some of the special equipment that some recipes required. After all, cheesemaking has been going on for centuries. Should it really be this complicated to try in a modern home? None of us has calibrated presses, humidity gauges, and acidity testers in our home kitchens.

After lots of research and perseverance, Claudia refined her own techniques for making fresh cheeses that don’t require aging and can be made at home with little or no special equipment. Now
she’s sharing her experience with fellow aspiring cheesemakers.

With an Urban Cheesecraft DIY Cheese Kit, all you need is a gallon of pasteurized milk (not ultra-pasteurized). The kits include the rest of the supplies such as cheesecloth, a dairy thermometer, vegetarian rennet, citric acid, and cheese salt. (Supplies vary depending on the kit you choose.) Just follow the instructions, and in about an hour, you’ll have fresh mozzarella, ricotta, queso blanco, paneer, or goat cheese. Once you get the hang of it, you can have fun experimenting with different spices, shapes, and recipes. Your taste buds will love the effort.
