Home Cheese Making in Australia is a journey through cheese, starting with simpler soft cheeses and moving through to the more elaborate hard cheeses. It contains clear, concise instructions as well as a list of necessary equipment and troubleshooting questions. This is also the only cheese making book written for the Australian market and that is backed by an Australian company who are happy to answer any questions that arise when trying to make the cheeses from the book. Through her website Green Living Australia, Valerie also supplies all the ingredients and tools needed to make cheese.

This book is the culmination of over 25 years of home cheese making, and some intensive research to understand the science behind the art of cheese making. Valerie has been running cheese making courses across the country since 2004 and has already helped hundreds of Australians learn how to create their very own cheese.

I've purchased other books on cheesemaking but the recipes call for raw milk which is not allowed here. I nearly fell over backwards when I discovered this book. It gives recipes for homogenised, pasteurised milk from the store and being able to purchase the necessary ingredients to return the milk to it's original state is incredible. This book gives recipes for any cheese you desire. Recipes are well written and so very easy to follow. The author also has videos to show you step by step if you require that much help. I'm so excited to be making my very first batch of cheese.
Fantastic book and customer service !

I ordered the cheese making book and beginners class for my mums birthday and was SO impressed by the delivery - it was received within 2 days. I emailed to advise that my mum will be taking the classes, and the girls changed the name for the class and even wished my mum a happy birthday. Lovely service and the books contents are so descriptive and well written. 5 stars !

"Home Cheese Making in Australia" is the most incredible cheese making book on the market. The level of instruction it provides is phenomenal. I used to have failure after failure using other books, but now nothing but successes. It's like having a personal tutor to walk you through each process. Valerie has also been incredibly helpful in replying to email queries - many thanks!
Well Worth Buying

Had the book for a week now & I just keep re-reading many sections as I find it relates to Australian conditions, cheeses that are suitable for our country & cultures that are available out here. The trouble shooting sections touches on problems I had been experiencing & hopefully now they will be problems no more. The book is well written with a ton of information & was of a much higher standard than what I had expected it to be. Anyone buying this book will not be disappointed. To the author "Well Done".
