Easy step-by-step recipes for fresh dairy products, including butter, yoghurt, labneh, sour cream, cream cheese, ricotta, cottage cheese, feta and more. This is the perfect book for anyone with a passion for good honest food.
Making yoghurt and soft, unripened cheeses are age-old traditions and only a few generations ago, many people made them at home using their own family recipes. Today, few people attempt it, thinking it will be too difficult or complicated but this book will show you just how easy it is. Easy-to-follow step-by-step recipes are all fully illustrated with colour photographs and there are plenty of delicious recipes you can make with your home-made ingredients. Try the Buttermilk Scones or the Lamb Kebabs with Za'atar Labneh. Beet Latkes with Lox and Sour Cream or Ricotta and Spinach Dumplings with Cherry Tomato Sauce are perfect for entertaining and the Fig and Honey Ricotta Cheesecake is simply divine.
The Creamery Kitchen will help you develop a deeper understanding of the provenance of delicious home-made food and the care, time and love that goes into producing it.
