about me

Who I am, how you can find out easily how to make cheese and why I created this site..

Let’s get started with who I am:

My name is Jürgen Frech and I live in the little village Egesheim on the Heuberg in south Germany.

What is this page about?
Here you can get insights and information about how to make cheese. You will see how easy it is if you have a good guide and and proven homemade cheese recipes.
A good cheese begins with the selection of the milk and ends with the correct aging or storage. You will learn everything you need to know here.
I want to inspire you to do it yourself and to experience it so that you too can enjoy natural tasty and healthy cheese.

Savory cheese should not be a thing of the past. And that’s why I started collecting homemade cheese recipes and everything worth knowing over 20 years ago. So that I can do what my grandfather used to do: Making cheese!
I’ll show you exactly what you need to make cheese yourself. Here’s a little overview:

tools how to make cheese

Starting with milk, overall tools and machines. The processing of milk, the assortment of own fresh spice mixes for the homemade cheese recipes. The selection and the preparation and filling of the cheese forms is here also treated in detail, so that the finished cheese is also durable. And of course how to smoke cheese.

I want to show you, how to make cheese, with easy and proven methods.

Why was this page created?
It all started in 2011 in Germany. Many acquaintances, relatives, and friends asked me to share my numerous homemade cheese recipes and knowledge about how to make cheese with others. Thats why i created the site: www.käse-selber-machen.de

But one after anonther 😉
After several requests from my acquaintances, I also started years ago, to write my first guidebook on how to make cheese and I have passed on to them.
They read the guidebook and made their own cheese themselves in the kitchen with the help of the step by step instructions.
They were so excited about how well everything is described and how tasteful the homemade cheese recipes are. So they have repeatedly asked me to make this knowledge available to all those interested.

Then I set about creating the German page www.käse-selber-machen.de

This was a resounding success! In the meantime, I have been able to show tens of thousands of people in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland,  how to make cheese in a simple and effective way. The books published by me on the subject occupy the top spots at Amazon in the cheese category. Over the years, I received enthusiastic feedback from countless people, who had previously not ventured to the matter. And now quickly and easily, they make cheese by themselves, through my guides and my proven homemade cheese recipes. I also got more and more inquiries from the English speaking people, if my books are available in English. That’s why I’ve set out to share my knowledge and experience in this field with all the people who speak English. I’ve often heard how much Americans like European cheese, but it’s hard to find. Here’s the solution to this problem: simply get to know, how to make cheese, use my proven homemade cheese recipes and enjoy both: making the cheese and most important eating them! 😉

That’s why I created the page how-to-make-cheese.com

I am very proud to show it to you and to give you all my knowledge. So that you too can get to know how to make cheese yourself.
I’ve put special focus on making every single step as easy and precise as I could explain so that really everyone can make his own cheese.
I can still remember my beginnings when I started making cheese myself. It was not an easy time and really difficult to get all the information that is required.
At that time I was grateful for any help I could get! This was my way of saying thank you by helping others.
This site is intended to help anyone interested in making delicious and high-quality cheese on their own. And to see how much fun and delight it can bring to your life.
This site now gives you the opportunity to learn and experience all, that I have learned and brought together for more than 20 years.
I wish you a lot of pleasure in getting to know how to make cheese, and when it’s done, Bon appetite!

Sincerely your Jürgen Frech
the german cheesemaker 🙂
