We are still working our way through David Asher's book, The Art of Natural Cheesemaking. I love this project and the cheeses we have made!
A couple of weeks ago, we made some space in the cheese cave (by eating some delicious cheese, of course) and Wyatt and I started working on our first Gorgonzola style cheese. For this project, rather than taking still photographs, I videoed the process. I shot everything on my iPhone, using my GorillaPod tripod. If you watch the video, you'll notice a bunch of first time filmmaker mistakes, especially if you really know what you're doing with a video camera (or iMovie, for that matter). But the video also shows how Wyatt and I work together in the kitchen, and we do pretty well.
I was curious what it would be like to watch us, and I wondered if I would be able to put together anything decent from the footage I got. Our first day of cheesemaking took about 3.5 hours, and we worked on the cheese off and on for a week after that. But the entire video is only about 15 minutes long—not bad if you want a relatively quick look at what it is like to make cheese at home with an almost 5-year old.
With that, I give you my Gorgonzola video. Enjoy!
