Milwaukie, OR (PressExposure) January 11, 2013 -- Now available in hard copy at Amazon.com and as an e-book on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com is Simply Soft Cheese - Cheese Making Made Quick & Easy. This is the latest release from Portland-based author Tammie Painter.
Simply Soft Cheese is for anyone who has been curious about making cheese at home, but has been too wary to try. Painter uses a dose of humor mixed in with plenty of advice and tips to guide the beginning cheese maker through a dozen soft cheeses. Each recipe requires less than an hour of work and many can be made with basic kitchen tools and ingredients. Because some of the cheeses may be new to the reader, each chapter features a recipe to teach readers how to use the cheese they've just created.
Painter states: "I've been making cheeses ranging from ricotta to Romano, paneer to Parmesan for several years. I'm thrilled with my to-die-for hard cheeses, but the near-instant gratification of making soft cheese puts them higher on my list of cheeses I routinely make. And, regardless how many times I make the soft cheeses presented in this book, I'm amazed at how a process so simple can yield something so delicious."
This is Painter's third self-published non-fiction book and once again highlights her style of clear instruction with a mix of humor to keep things from getting dull. Because she knows you'll become addicted to making cheese, Simply Soft Cheese also presents a silly take on the history of cheese and a personal essay as a caution to anyone who wants to move onto making hard cheeses.
Simply Soft Cheese is currently available on Amazon.com and bn.com. A visual tour of Simply Soft Cheese can be taken at Pinterest (pinterest.com/tammiepainter/simply-soft-cheese) and an excerpt can be read on Goodreads.com by searching for "Simply Soft Cheese."
Painter's website (TammiePainter.com) also offers a free recipe for people who can't wait to get started.
