Attention cheese lovers: we have found a very cool tool that can be added to your culinary wishlist in no time. It is a cheese maker with which you can make your own cheese in just two hours. Are you already salivating at the idea of your own homemade, super fresh cheese? We do.
Cheese maker: a simple device
The cheese maker we are talking about is from the brand Lékué and will cost you barely €26. So don’t expect complicated equipment, but a basic device with which you can make your own cheese in an ingeniously simple way.
The principle is simple. The cheese maker consists of three elements: a bowl to heat milk, a lid that measures the acidity and a sieve in which the cheese is formed. You don’t really need more for homemade cheese.
How does it work?
It only takes you 15 minutes of cooking time. You need this to put the milk (along with any seasonings) in the bowl of the cheese maker and heat it in the microwave. Let this mixture rest for half an hour and drain for another hour in the sieve.
Tadaaa: you should now be able to pop your own prepared, fresh cheese out of the strainer. The type of cheese you’re imagining here is a white, feta-like cheese. It is already very tasty pure, but you can also indulge yourself with toppings such as honey, rose petals or pistachios. Or make your own herb cheese and roll your cheese in a jacket of finely chopped green herbs (which is also so delicious!).
In short: put it on your culinary wishlist soon (or give it as a gift to one of your cheese lovers!). We are fans.
