Learn to craft some of the most decadent cheese the world has to offer. Brie & camembert seem like magical cheeses but they’re actually some of the easiest to make at home with very little special equipment required. We’ll show you how in this two (or 3!)-day class, complete with edible homework. This format is really ideal for this type of cheese which needs a little work for two days and then very light maintenance for a couple of weeks before it’s completed.

Day 1 has us starting the cheese, talking about the bloomy rind category and the science behind that gorgeous rind. You’ll take care of your little cheese baby overnight per our instructions and then on Day 2we’ll do any treatments like adding ash or bark and talk about aging it to perfection over the next 3-6 weeks.

Day 3 (optional but recommended) – We’ll check in 2 weeks later to take a look at your cheese’s progress, address any questions/concerns you may have and make any necessary course correction. This check-in day is one of the most important parts since we’ll do cheese aging forensics and get to the bottom of what’s going on with each person’s cheese! You learn the most by trying something on your own and coming back with relevant questions.

Tiny brie wheels make a show-stopping gift and one gallon makes 6-7 mini 4″ wheels!
