Sampling Home Made Parmesan
No, it wasn’t mine, but tonight we really enjoyed having home made parmesan on our spaghetti and meatballs.
Gavin, from The Greening Of Gavin fame, recently held a competition to name his new home-made cheese blog (the cheese is home-made; although I guess the blog probably is too). Since he’s a big greenie, and as a play on his main blog name, I suggested he name the blog Green Cheese. Gav liked the name but it was taken, so it became Little Green Cheese.
Pop over and check it out!
The prize for picking the winning name was a chunk of home-made parmesan. I wasn’t sure how that was going to go in the post from Melbourne, but it arrived safe and sound.
I was a bit nervous about wasting it, and wanted to keep this special cheese for a worthy meal. Tonight I made Tuscan meatballs on spaghetti, and we finally had to opportunity to break out the parmesan.
What can I say – yum! The cheese was excellent!
If you’re interested in how parmesan is made, Gav has a recipe and instructions on his new site – making parmesan.
Cheesemaking is something I’d like to try, but I have so many other projects on the go that I don’t want to take on a new hobby that I know I’ll become obsessed with! If only there were more hours in the day :-).
Have you ever made cheese? How did it go? Do you make it regularly?
