Home Dairy With Ashley English
The artisan home dairy is a big trend. Part of the successful Homemade Living series, this book guides the reader through all of the fundamentals while also explaining the whys and hows involved with home dairy. Learn the essentials through five topic-specific primers: Cheese, Yogurt, Butter & Ghee, Cultured Dairy Products and Ice Cream. Each primer offers need-to-know information, troubleshooting tips and recipes with variation ideas. Create delicious compound butters infused with herbs, spices, fruits and more. Amaze family and friends (and yourself!) with a platter of homemade cheeses, from creamy chèvre and tangy, salt-brined feta to classic cheddar and fragrant gorgonzola. Top it all off with an assortment of ice cream recipes tailored specifically to each season. The author then also offers her unique spin on home dairy with her own list of seasonal recipes using some of the preceding dairy goods. Starting from appetizer (Chilled Cucumber Yogurt Soup or Chèvre, Cranberry and Pecan Spread) and main course (traditional Macaroni Cheese or exotic Saag Paneer) to delectable dessert (Ricotta Cheesecake), there's something here for every palette and there are 40 tested recipes in all. Gorgeous photos, helpful reference charts and a glossary make this the most useful book on the subject.
