In Which The Author Learns to Make Cheese for Her DIY Column

By Posted in - News on September 23rd, 2013 0 Comments costa rica diy column

I learned how to make cheese in Costa Rica for my DIY column! Rancho Avellanas (where I took the photo of all those adorable goats on the slideshow at the top of my webpage, just after the monkeys*) supplied me with all the necessary farm-fresh ingredients. Ricotta was my favorite, but the mascarpone was to DIE for. Seriously, I almost died. I can’t wait to get some rennet and try to figure out how to make mozzarella (that seemed a bit too complicated for a very basic DIY column, and I didn’t know how difficult rennet would be to acquire in Costa Rica – the land where you can’t even find cheesecloth).

Here are some photos of strawberries with mascarpone. Y UMMY!!
