Great taste. Great fun.

This was really fun to do with my partner. We we’re surprised at how easy it was and tasted great. I felt it was a good value and have given it many times as a gift to friends during Covid 19.

Great Gift!

This gift received rave reviews! Have not heard yet how the cheese turned out, which is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5.

Excellent gift for foodie!

I sent this to my brother for his birthday. He was happily surprised! He said he couldn't wait to make his own cheese for his pizza creations or mozzarella for stuffed shells. I will update this when he tells me how it turned out!

Thermometer was broken

I’m so sad about this. We were all excited to get our cheese making kit and were halfway through the process when we realized the thermometer is defective. It’s off by 20 degrees so the cheese didn’t work and now we need a new thermometer and milk to make the rest of it!

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.
