When we think about making cheese our own home kitchen, we tend to think about ricotta as the only cheese which is achievable to make a home. But who has all the special ingredients or the equipment in their kitchen. And not all of us like ricotta.
That’s where the team from Mad Millie come in. Mad Millie is a New Zealand based company specialising in food and beverage kits. Mad Millie have developed home kits so the home cook can make a variety of products from sausages, tofu, yoghurt, gin, beer, cider and of course, cheese. The cheese making kits have everything you need to make your very own cheese.
The Italian Cheese Kit lets you make mozzarella, mascarpone, salata, burrata, bocconcini and of course ricotta.
The Fresh Cheese Kit allows you make feta, halloumi, cottage cheese, light cream cheese, cream cheese, chevre feta, goat’s feta and quark. You can also make farmhouse butter with this kit.
Mad Millie also have larger cheese kits starting the Artisan Cheese Kit where you have cheeses to make from scratch. Cheese from mozzarella, ricotta, ricotta salata, mascarpone, quark, cottage cheese, feta, goat’s feta, goat’s milk spreadable cheese, halloumi, light cream cheese, cream cheese, farmhouse butter, Chevre Frais, colby, cheddar, havarti, Caerphilly and Wensleydale.
And finally, we have the Specialty Cheese Kit where you can make Camembert, Double Cream Brie, Stilton Style Cheese, French Neufchatel, Blue Vein Cheese and Gorgonzola.
All kits comes with everything you needs such as rennet tablets, thermometre, citric acid, cheese salt, cheese cloth, steriliser, pipette and storage containers. With the cheese kits, you can also purchase a draining spoon, curd knife and cheese press.
We think the Mad Millie cheese kits are a great way to make cheese in your own home. If you have kids, this is a great way to get them involved in the kitchen.
