Hello Caseophile,
What a lovely blog! May I recommend the following international (though largely based in the USA) website www.cheeseforum.org for those who like to make cheese at home.

I found your blog during a search for Bleu de Passeloup information as I am a home maker of goat cheeses from my own goats' milk here in Northern California. In reading along different posts, I found this one on the novel idea posed for Swiss and (maybe) French people to make cheese at home. I've found among my friends from different European and Asian countries, that the idea of being a 'do-it-yourselfer', or DIY for short, is foreign to many nationalities outside of the USA or Australia. Of course, some traditional practices have remained universal--like knitting and cooking. However, maybe because both in the USA and in Australia, which were colonized by Europeans without many of the technologies already present to live from day-to-day, we are a culture of DIY-ers, including everything from furnituremaking and auto repair to (gasp!) cheesemaking. We often turn over much of our home space to such hobbies, and an entire sales industry and blog-o-sphere has grown up around these practices. I, myself, have learned, through the use of online information and books, how to make bread, soap, toiletries, yogurt, cheese, vinegar, clothes, knitwear, preserved foods and liqueurs. Perhaps the need to be self-sufficient in those who 'settled' (invaded) North America and Australia created this mentality as part of our national identity. Also, because we are relatively young cultures, some would say 'uncultured' even, we are less bound by tradition and are thus more adventurous to try new things. Certainly the cheese culture of France, Switzerland and other European nations is more about preserving the unique and special nature of those cheeses produced traditionally in certain regions and by historic methods--WONDERFUL! But those of us who are DIY can't live in all those places or use those methods, so we must borrow, and sometimes even create our own little unique products. This is individually rewarding.
THANK YOU for also posting your blog in English, so that more of us can enjoy what you have to share.
