"I Ain't Got No Cave, Man" (Or Woman!)


Sometimes people just want to explore the world of cheese without investing too many dollars in equipment.  A "cave"-generally a beverage or wine refrigerator used to age cheese is one of those items that some might want to delay spending money on until their cheese hobby becomes a full fledge habit.

Sooooo, here's the workshop for you! We'll explore four distinctly delicious cheeses that do not require an aging cave. And, as an added bonus, each is relatively light on equipment and supplies required to make the cheese.  During a full day of hands on instruction, we'll explore two cow's milk cheeses and two goat milk cheeses.

First up is Feta. Stored in a brine solution, it's not only super tasty but a great value for your money and it keeps in a brine solution for months. Next is Squeaky Curds. If you're from the midwest, you know these are a staple on the cheese scene and the instant gratification of making them and immediately consuming the "squeak" is hard to beat.  On the goat milk side, we'll make goat milk Bells- a lightly pressed washed curd cheese. And, last but not least, the classic goat milk Chevre including Chevre buttons.

This workshop is designed for the  curious foodie beginning their cheese making journey. Price of instruction includes hands on instruction, detailed recipes, refreshments and lunch.

All Things Goat! It's So Much More Than Chevre

When I tell people that I make goat cheese, they often think solely about fresh chevre-the soft goat cheese that restuarants put on salads and is available in plastic packages at the grocery store. But there's so much more to offer in goat milk cheese. 


In this class, we explore four different styles of goat cheese including Mini Maures-my take on a log shaped bloomy rind cheese (think the style of brie or camembert but with goat milk), Cabecou-a soft goat button cheese marinated in different flavored olive oils, Tasty Goat Tidbits-pressed and herb infused washed rind cheese buttons, and yes, the classic chevre including beautiful chevre buttons. It's a full day of all things goat!


Designed for the basic and intermediate cheese maker, this class is perfect for the curious cheese foodie or individuals with access to farm fresh goat milk. We'll review the basics of cheese making, equipment required and then plunge into making cheese. Plan on a full day of hands-on learning. Price includes instruction, detailed recipes, lunch & refreshments.
