Join veteran cheese maker (close to two decades of experience) and whole food cook Linda Conroy and find out how simple it is to make cheese in your own kitchen. This introduction will offer an opportunity to explore this lost art.
We will create and sample several simple cheeses that can be cultivated at home. We will make cultured butter, feta cheese, mozzarella and several varieties of soft cheese. After learning to make kefir, we will transform this fermented milk beverage into soft spreadable cheese and a soft condiment that can be used in place of sour cream. You’ll also learn some cooking ideas for whey, a byproduct of cheese making. Students can build on this introduction to create many varieties of cheese at home.
Fee: $75 Includes: light lunch, samples, cheese to take home, recipes and a cheese culture to get you started.
$140 for the cheese making weekend (More Cheese Making: Cheddar and Gouda)
