Follow along with handouts and easy to follow recipes so that your success is insured when you repeat the steps at home. We'll talk about which milk to use, cultures, and why certified organic milk isn't always your best choice. We'll make two or three different cheeses; Garlic Ricotta, Herbed Queso Fresca, Fromage Blanc, Paneer, Feta and Neufchatel cream cheese are among those we choose to make and sample during the class.
Class starts at 9:00. Arrive 15 minutes early if you'd like, to sample herbed cheeses as well as our just churned butter and freshly milled muffins. Warm up with hot coffee or herbal tea while meeting your fellow cheese loving adventurers! Get a chance to meet the farm’s beautiful Nigerian dairy goats, and pet our yearlings and adults. Bring a crunchy granola bar or two and you’ll be everyone’s best friend, especially Carl The Herd Leader who eats anything but really gets excited if it’s crunchy.
Tuition: $65 per class per person. Payment and reservations can be made by a quick email here: firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have a CSA account with Morning Song Farm, or make your reservation and payment at meetup: http://www.meetup.com/Morning-Song-Farm-Cheese-Making/
Please, no impromteau arrivals. The class size is limited for a reason, so we need to have firm reservations. Our barn is now heated, but do come with a sweater just in case. The pathway to the barn is rough and unpaved, so stash the stilettos or dress shoes; and opt for sneakers or boots for your cheese making day.
