Home Fresh Cheese Maker

It’s pretty rare for me to blog about products I receive—mostly I write about stuff I buy myself. My culinary new finds. Think of me as Switzerland! Neutral; not raving because I’m paid to have a positive opinion, or out of fear for not getting free stuff anymore. You see that a lot these days on Dutch blogs.

Not this time, though. This will be a full-on rave about the cheese making set I got in a surprise package from Boska Holland, so brace yourself. I would’ve bought the set in a heartbeat had I seen it in the store. It’s so complete and I think it would make a unique present for some of my friends.

 

Also, it looks pretty and cute. Don’t frown..I’m a girl! Pretty and cute counts.

This set comes in a canning jar (told you it was cute) and is filled with everything you need to make cheese. That’s 15 rounds of home-made cheese.

 

It includes 4 cheese moulds.

A cheese cloth in the form of a bag. Loved the bag idea!

The cutest wooden spoon, a cheese knife and thermometer.

Of course the set comes with rennet tablets (vegetarian rennet, from what I’ve been told), recipe and even a bag of salt and herbs de Provence (with matching recipe for a creamy herb cheese).

I also got a huge stack of cards that really made me smile. They all grace my fridge now.

Plus, I got a cheese grater key chain and this little Delfs Blauw cheese grater. Envy me.

Apparently there are three sets: one for butter, one for Mozzarella and one for cheese (prices range from €14,95 to €19,95). The one I have is the cheese set and suffice to say you’re going to see a recipe pretty soon.

For comparison purposes I’ll buy the other two sets and will give them a spin as well. It’s a dirty job, I know, but someone’s gotta do it!
