Home Cheese Making ($45): Among all of the projects that brave home cooks take on in the privacy of their own kitchens, cheese-making seems to be one of the more intimidating and avoided. There are cultures, temperatures and butterfat percentages to consider... right? Don't worry, if you've ever baked a cake, you can master cheese-making. It's a great skill to add to your repertoire, and homemade cheeses are versatile and easily customized to your particular liking. Cheese-making is also a fun and rewarding process that the whole family can participate in, and it's a great learning experience for kids and adults alike! This workshop will focus on three basic cheeses which are easy to recreate at home - chevre, feta and mozzarella. It's hard to believe that such delicious cheeses can be made so simply, but after you taste your first batch of fresh cheese, you'll never feel the same way about the store-bought stuff. Students will leave with basic cheese-making knowledge and skills as well as resources for finding fresh, local milk and cheese-making tools. TBA
