A slate cheese set is a high-quality kitchen appliance, usually made of stone or ceramic material. They are widely used to make pizza, pasta, cheese fondue and other delicacies. However, buying a ready-made slate cheese set can be expensive, so trying to make a slate cheese set yourself might be a good option.
Before we try to make our own slate cheese set, we need some materials and tools. We need the following tools and materials:
cheese stir stick
Rigid PVC board
With the tools and materials ready, we can start making our own slate cheese set. Here are some steps:
1. Make Slate Cheese
Pour the milk into the baking dish, add the salt and vanilla extract, and stir to combine. Add the lemon juice to the milk and wait for the milk to curdle. Remove the curdled cheese, add the cream cheese and mix well. Place the cheese in the refrigerator to cool.
2. Prepare the hard PVC board
Cut the rigid PVC board to size and cut out the shape of the slate cheese set out of cardboard. Place the cardboard on the rigid PVC sheet and mark the outline with a pencil. Use a knife to cut the rigid PVC sheet along the marked lines.
3. Coating the rigid PVC board
Mix paraffin and beeswax together and heat to melt. Pour the melted wax into the recessed part of the rigid PVC sheet and spread the wax evenly with a baking sheet lid or other suitable tool. Place the rigid PVC board in the oven at 150°C for 10 minutes until the wax hardens.
4. Make the Pizza Stone
Cover the baking sheet with aluminum foil and mark the shape of the pizza stone with a pencil. Use a cutter to cut the foil along the marked lines to get the shape of a pizza stone. Place the pizza stone on the baking sheet, weigh with a kitchen scale and add the missing pieces. Put the added ingredients in the oven and bake at 350°C for 30 minutes, until the ingredients are firm.
5. Coated Pizza Stone
Pour the melted wax into the depression of the pizza stone and spread the wax evenly with a baking sheet lid or other suitable implement. Put the pizza stone in the oven and bake at 150°C for 10 minutes, until the wax hardens.
6. Cooling and finishing
Remove the slate cheese kit from the oven and place on a baking sheet. Weigh with a kitchen scale and add the missing pieces.
