This beginner level class & event will teach you to make some simple & delicious cheeses that you can make within 1 hour or less, and have them ready for your dinner party that same day. Each group of students will start with milk and finesse it over the course of the class to transform it into a scrumptious ricotta cheese and a quick queso fresco. We will demonstrate how to make a fresh easy chevre along with tips on how to infuse cheese with different herbs & spices to give it a unique flavor. Participants will learn how to use these cheeses to make your own cheese platter. We will also be discussing the best wine & beer pairings that go with these cheeses. This class & type of cheeses are a great place to start if you’re new to cheese making. Not only is the class fun, but the cheeses are easy to make and require minimal specialized ingredients or equipment. They are also ready to eat very soon after they’re made. In case you were worried about going hungry, we'll be sampling the cheese products along the way. You will leave the class with your own copies of the recipes of the cheese we made and the knowledge to make your own cheese at home. Making The Cheese will provide a cheese platter for an appetizer. No food is available for purchase at this venue only Wine.
