Urban Cheese Craft a Portland based Etsy site lets you become a cheese maker from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a credit card and you’ll be on your way to cheese-maker extraordinaire. Just make sure you’ve also got an hour and a gallon of milk. Your choices are Mozzarella/Ricotta, Paneer/Queso Blanco, or Goat Cheese/Chevre. These make great gifts for anyone on your list or great weekend activity plans if you have children that are old enough to work a measuring cup and young enough not to tell you “I’m bored” every five minutes.
Claudia Lucero started Urban Cheese Craft in 2009, here’s what she has to say about herself.
Hi. I’m a cheesemaker paying off student loans while spreading the joy of cheese making with my shop Urban Cheesecraft. I hope you enjoy this simple but super rewarding skill as much as I do.
Hey, you’ve got to love her honesty, right? And with intentions so pure and a true love of cheese I bet the $25 or so you spend on these Kits will be the best money you’ve spent all year!
