Recently, I’ve started my science fair project. I am experimenting about how different milks change the taste of cheese. I’m using two books, The Science of Cheese by Michael H. Tunick and The Cheesemaker’s Apprentice by Sasha Davies with David Bleckmann, and a web source, CurdNerd. These sources will help me figure out how to make cheese and give me a little science too.
Here’s a fun fact: cheese curds SQUEAK because they are elastic and not aged and just days old, but filled with air, so it is just like when you run your fingers on freshly washed hair or a piece of chalk on a blackboard which skips rapidly and squeaks with the air pockets.
Stay tuned to hear how it all turns out!
