Doris makes cheese.
“I want to make cheese because I am curious. Curious if I am able to MAKE what most other people BUY, to find out the process that is behind the neatly wrapped yellow squares in the supermarkets and to be independent from the market.
Â I started by asking my network of family and friends, the knowledge that they gave me I substitued with books and info on the internet. I put these little bits and pieces of information together and began the process of making my first cheese. Leon the milkman helped me with the finishing touches.
I was so excited when I tasted my first cheese, and so were my friends: â€œDid you really make this? I did not know that one can make cheese on their own!â€
But the excitement goes much further: it encourages me to try a lot of things that I considered impossible before.”
