Basics of Home Cheese Making 2018 – 2 Day Workshop

hands in curdsA hands-on workshop in basic home cheese making.  In this two-day workshop we’ll be using simple equipment you may already have at home to make a jack cheese the first day, press overnight, then finish the second.  In addition, we will also make feta, yogurt, a lactic cheese, quick mozzarella, ricotta (a whey cheese) and butter, depending on the interests of the class. This workshop will concentrate on basic cow cheeses using grocery store milk but will also delve briefly into goat cheese. Basic use of ripening cultures and rennet and milk chemistry will be covered. You will go home with cheese that you’ve made! Please read about our workshops here.
