  • Yoghurt Cheese or Labneh Recipe

    This is a soft cheese, also known as Lubneh or Laban, that can be made with a quality natural yoghurt.

    Ingredients:

    • 1 litre of natural yoghurt
    • 1 tsp of cheese salt (or to taste)

    Method:

    1. Line a colander with tight weave cheesecloth and transfer the yoghurt into it.
    2. Gather the four corners of the cloth to make a bag and suspend over a bowl to catch the whey which drips through. This whey may be used for bread making, or other cooking.
    3. Drain for 12 to 24 hours, or until the whey has stopped dripping from the bag.
    4. Remove the cheese from the bag and place it into a bowl and mix in your salt.
    5. Store in the refrigerator in a air tight container for up to 2 weeks.

    This is an excellent cheese for savoury dishes, and I use this when making stuffed capsicums. Try mixing this cheese with chopped, roasted garlic and piping it into mushroom tops, which are then grilled. Enjoy!

  • Camembert

    Most people do not know the difference between Camembert and Brie, and this is understandable as the recipes are much the same. Both cheeses are French in origin and are named for the region that they come from. Camembert comes from Camembert, in the Normandy region of France. Camembert was made from whole, raw milk from Norman cows. Camembert is customarily shaped in disks of 11 cm in diameter, 4 cm thick, weighing about 250 grams.
