Have fun learning  a full array of accurate traditional and professional cheesemaking techniques in every class, and go home ready to make all your favorites!  Methods taught apply to both cow and goat milk. This class is great whether you've never made cheese, or you've made a lot of it. Get ALL your questions answered, and go home ready to make your favorites.

Get your hands into cheese making, 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, find out why correct milk cooling entirely affects the flavor and success of your cheese, see the correct curd texture at draining, and understand how to monitor and control acidity and pH, moisture, temperature, and salt, in order to create consistently delicious cheeses.

You will NOT bring home cheese, that would be wildly impractical! But you will bring home knowledge, confidence and a complete direction booklet for making all your favorites. 

Whether you are new to cheesemaking or want to improve your current skills, in my classes you will get your questions answered.
