Maeva asked:
<<< First, are you planning on making all these cheeses yourself? I  
would love
to know where are you getting the recipes for these? Mozzarella I know,
but some of the others I am  not familiar with. >>>

I was interested in hearing the answers to your questions, as well. I  
assume she is making the cheeses herself. If you've never visited  
there, you might be interested in browsing through the various cheese  
files in the FOOD section of the Florilegium.  I know that I've put  
most of the cheese recipes given on this list in there and a lot of  
"technique" commentary. For instance:
blue-cheese-msg   (20K)  9/23/07    Period blue cheeses.
fresh-cheeses-msg (44K)  6/ 1/06    Fresh cheeses such as cream  
cheese and
                                        cottage cheese. Non-aged  
whey-cheeses-msg  (32K)  6/ 1/06    Cheeses such as ricotta made from  
the liquid
                                        left after making other cheeses.
cheesemaking-msg (126K)  7/28/06    Comments and info. on  
cheesemaking. Recipes.

It sounds like you've done some cheesemaking yourself, so if you have  
additional comments on this, I'd love to have them either on this  
list or by email to add to these files.

You might also be interested in this file in the FOOD-MANUSCRIPT  
section as well.

<<< Whose little cheese cave is full of proto goat brie and white  
mold is
covering everything in the cave. (My cave is a wine cooler.) >>>

By "wine cooler" do you mean one of the small refrigerator units,  
often with glass doors? Is the white mold covering the inside of the  
unit or just the cheese which is in there? Does this mean you can  
only age one type of cheese at a time?
