Writing a Cheese Making Book, and Traveling in Denmark, Summer 2014

Posted 3/5/2014 10:36am by Merryl Winstein.

(March 5, 2014) Well, it's been a long time since I last blogged!  I have been writing my book on Cheese Making.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Describing every step of cheesemaking in a way that you the cheesemaker can easily understand - that's a huge project!  It's much more complex than the directions in my other book (Your Fertility Signals, Using them to Achieve or Avoid Pregnancy Naturally - Smooth Stone Press).  Wow, I thought that one was hard to finish, but it took only 2 years.  My cheese making book?  Four years.
The other big news is I am going back to Denmark in summer 2014.  After all this time away!  I'm going on a long bike trip with my penpal, visiting friends, and working with a well-known Danish cheesemaker who is going to show me how to make all those great cheeses I ate there when I was a teenager. Using the old methods in the cheese vat.

Should I say I'm excited?  I eat, breathe, think and dream about my upcoming trip!  I have been learning Danish since autumn, and I hope to buy old cheesemaking books, which I will be able to read.
When I met with my penpal in the USA last October, she told me something amazing.  She said, "Were you aware that, since my father was in the cheesemaking industry since a child, he insisted that we have only the very best cheeses in our house, and my parents drove long distances to get them?"  Wow!  So, i was eating the very best Danish artisan cheeses of 1970 (before large-scale industrialization).  No wonder I was astounded by the flavors then, and can still remember them!

Well, back to the drawing board.  I mean, the computer screen.  It's a writing day.
