    Love it

    Posted by James Swagel on 4th Sep 2023

    This kit has everything. I bought the optional press and book along with it. Good thing I did. Working with the book and recognizing I’m a beginner I made my first cheese yesterday, and it was DELICIOUS!

    Have not started making the cheeses yet but everything from selecting the kit, through ordering, and delivery was very fast and easy. Well thought out kit and great book. Can't wait to get started.
