Make some of the richest and creamiest cheeses you’ll ever taste. Capture the simplicity and delicacy of fresh Italian-style cheese by making it the way it’s supposed to be done. At home in a kitchen no bigger than your own.
Includes equipment and ingredients to make mozzarella, burrata, ricotta and mascarpone.
All the ingredients in the kit are good for at least 18 months. Makes 8 batches of cheese.
The majority of cheese you find in your local corner store is not even 100% cheese. Most of the time, it hovers around 50% real cheese and artificial ingredients like food dyes, preservatives, extra dairy, and emulsifiers. On top of that, the milk that’s used comes from cows that are pumped with hormones and antibiotics and ultra pasteurized at such a high temperature that the process can affect the protein. All of this is done to drive down the cost of the product and extend its shelf life to months and even years.
Making cheese at home means that you have full control over its flavor, texture, and freshness. While the process may seem daunting, making cheese at home is super simple, once you have the right ingredients and tools. In fact, up until the last few generations, people always made cottage cheese at home – that’s why the word “cottage” is in the name.
Growing up in Upstate NY, I’ve always lived sustainably but it was hard to find ways to do that in NYC until I started getting my food through Local Roots NYC. With my busy schedule, I didn’t have time to do all the research for products that aligned with my values, but I trust the farmers and brands Local Roots works with.
