Workshop Details:

The art of cheese making is an ancient one - going back to the beginnings of civilization. Throughout history, this art has been passed down from generation to generation, but in recent years, this family craft has almost disappeared. In 1978 our company set out to reverse this trend, starting with workshops to teach people this wonderful skill. Participants came from around the country, learning techniques and sampling homemade cheeses and other delicious dairy products.

With over four decades of dedication in this field, we have seen a real revival of home cheese making around the world. It has been a very exciting adventure! These workshops help simplify the technicalities of the cheese making process for you. In this beginners class you will have fun exploring the art and magic of home cheese making. At the end of the workshop you will leave feeling confident about making all different types of delicious cheese in your own kitchen.

Great beginner class

Sarah and her husband are a wealth of knowledge. It was so fun to meet about 25 other cheese hobbiests from around the country. We made 7 different types of cheeses in our action-packed (mostly stirring ;) day and left with anticipation to get home and try our hands at it. Delicious lunch too!! Just found a supplier of raw milk today so Colby, here I come!

Great for beginners or more intermediate cheese makers

This was purchased for me as a gift. Even as someone who has made cheese before, and has read some of Ricki Carroll's books on the subject, I learned tons of new techniques and gained some confidence in the kitchen - despite this being a beginner class. They occur in a space with an awesome demo kitchen (complete with overhead mirror) so you can see everything that's going on. We learned how to keep milk at temp using sous vide, sterilization, techniques for cheese making, and about six-seven awesome recipes. When I left, all of the ingredients and supplies were available for me to take my game up a notch. Sarah and Mark were great teachers - with a lot of experience between them. I was able to ask some one on one questions at various points during the day and have an idea of how I'd like to start advancing in my cheese-making at home. The meal that Sarah and Mark prepared for us was amazing as well! This class is money - and time - well spent.

Cheese? Please!

With a tv-worthy kitchen, our instructor, Sarah, demonstrated the early stages of Colby and then made four other soft products that we got to taste. As she worked through the recipes, every time I went to make a note, I discovered that it was already in the handout. I've already made Queso Blanco, and now with my new supplies, more varieties are planned. This was a well-planned, informative day, presented clearly with thought and humor. The whey to making cheese is clear!
