Five years of writing and another book on the way

Posted by Jean Mansfield on 12 June 2013


I am in my fifth year of writing for Lifestyle Block Magazine focusing on farmhouse kitchen and cheesemaking recipes. My second cheese book will be published in the next few months with 25 plus new recipes including swiss style Emmental , Gruyere, chestnut wrapped banon and triple crème brie.

My first cheese book 'How to Make Cheese & Other Dairy Products' (published in 2012) has been a great success and is in its second printing. This was followed by ‘A fresh take on Preserves’ covering many pantry and preserving favourites of pickles, jams, sausagemaking and cheesemaking.

Thank you for the wonderful emails and photos from enthusiastic home cheesemakers who have been to one of my hands on classes or read some of my articles or books. I really appreciate the feedback.

Please keep an eye on our workshop calendar for upcoming dates and venues. Come and visit me at the farm in Waihi or one of my other venues and see what can be accomplished making cheese in your own kitchen.
