In St. Louis, MO each day we will make three or four or more different types of cheeses from start to press each day. Each requires a completely different method, so you'll learn a full array of accurate traditional and professional cheesemaking techniques in every class. Then you'll be prepared to make nearly any type of cheese at home. You will take home an excellent direction packet. And you may call me later with questions.
You will get your hands into these cheesemaking process, using all your sense to observe the changing textures and aromas which go along with the scientific explanations. You'll learn the different "clean breaks" for different kinds of cheese, the correct curd texture at draining, and undestand why it's important to monitor and control acidity and pH, moisture, temperature, and salt, in order to create consistent, delicious cheeses.
