Phoenix Books welcomes Claudia Lucero to our Zoom Channel for a demonstration of the basics of cheesemaking from her latest cookbook, Instant Pot Cheese.
ABOUT THE BOOK: The beloved Instant Pot can be used to do just about anything: caramelize onions, boil eggs, steam rice . . . and now, make cheese!
Cheesemaking in a multicooker is not only time- and money-saving, but the cooker’s accurate and consistent temperatures make it an ideal tool for the craft. Claudia Lucero, author of the best-selling One-Hour Cheese, presents the cheesemaking basics, then covers classics such as paneer, ricotta, goat cheese, and easy cottage cheese before introducing more sophisticated options like burrata and feta, and even dairy-free alternatives. For multicookers with a “Yogurt” function, there are recipes for cultured dairy products such as buttermilk, ghee, and sour cream, too.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Claudia Lucero is the author of Instant Pot Cheese, One Hour Cheese, and One Hour Dairy-Free Cheese. She is the entrepreneur behind UrbanCheesecraft.com and DIY Cheese Kits, which she sells through Etsy, specialty grocers, and select gift shops worldwide. Her work has been featured by NPR's All Things Considered, Good Morning America, Williams-Sonoma, Food Network, Rachel Ray, and others. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
