Yogurt and Soft Cheeses
Saturday, May 5th, 3 - 4:30 pm, $25
It's easy to make delicious, nutritious yogurt, chevre and cream cheese at home! In this class we’ll sample home-made Greek yogurt, non-fat yogurt and melt-in-your-mouth cream cheese. Participants will learn how to make each of these at home, as well as chevre, mascarpone and many other soft cheeses, with inexpensive equipment you may already have on hand – a thermometer and a thermos.
Saturday, June 2, 1 - 4 pm, $40
Feta is one of the simplest “hard” cheeses to make at home, and one of the most delicious! Homemade feta is lighter and fresher tasting than the feta available in local stores, making it one of the most gratifying cheeses to make at home. Each participant will make cow milk feta in the class, and the exact same recipe can be used for goat or sheep milk feta. You will get to leave class with about a pound of feta made by you that you can finish draining and brining at home. We’ll also have plenty of fresh feta on hand to enjoy during class!
Saturday, August 4, 3 - 4:30 pm, $25
Saturday, October 6, 3 - 4:30 pm, $25
Impress friends and neighbors by arriving at your next party with fresh mozzarella – no need to tell them it only took 30 minutes to make. In this class you’ll learn what the mozzarella should look like at each step, how to stretch it properly and a few little tricks for getting your mozzarella to turn out great every time. Each participant will make about a half pound of mozzarella to take home (or eat right away).
