Feta from Scratch
August 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm$110
“Feta. “White cheese.” Peynir. Whatever you call it, this lively, versatile cheese is one of the most beloved in the world! In time to use the creamy, crumbly one with Bay Area’s best summer produce, this class will teach you how to make feta at home. You will learn the basics of cheesemaking and where to find supplies, we’ll start a batch of feta together and talk feta history, we’ll taste three very different international and local versions, and you’ll learn how to turn your own feta into the most decadent marinated cheese you’ve ever had. At the end of the class we’ll sit down to a light dinner of salad, and enjoy two feta dishes we made together.
Note: Students will take home a container of curd home to finish making feta at home.
