Episode 3: Debbie's internship with cheesemakers in Italy
Debbie Driscoll had an amazing cheesemaking experience volunteering at two cheese factories in Italy, and we review her trip during this podcast. She visited Podere Paugnano near the Tuscan city of Radicondoli. In this video Giovanna, co-owner of the cheese plant, shows the different styles of sheep cheese that they produce. By networking while volunteering at her first cheesemaker, she managed to secure a second volunteering position at Caseificio Piandelmedico near the city of Jesi on the west coast of Italy. Here you see their cheesemakers working with and stretching Mozzarella. Debbie researched cheesemakers who accepted volunteers through these two sites: World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms and Help Exchange. Listen now...

Episode 1: Making Muenster
In our first podcast we prove we are real cheesemakers and make a cheese during the podcast. Jeff Cowan joins and helps me make a Muenster styled cheese. We also cover the basics of what it takes to make cheese, and what equipment you need if you are starting out at home. Credit goes to DeejayDebi on the cheeseformum.org forum for posting the recipe we used for this podcast. I used her recipe because it looked simple and from her post it looked like a recipe that she has used more than once. Find her post with the recipe here. Links mentioned on the show: The site www.realmilk.com lists sources of raw milk all over the USA, and other countires. I used them to track down the raw milk I used to make the cheese in this podcast (which came from Old School Farm, in Redland, OR.)I use thecheesemaker.com to order my cheesemaking supplies.Here is the wikipedia entry on b. linens, which we talk about in the show.Email us at email@example.com with feedback and questions for future shows.

Not so great.
Audio quality isn't very good, there are kids crying on the background, and the author has been doing this for nine months as he states at the beginning of the podcast, therefore facts are sketchy. A for effort, but that's about all.
