Workshop: Introduction to Cheesemaking

How is it that one vat of milk can spawn 1,000 different textures and flavors? Join us for an all-day deep dive into cheesemaking to answer this very question. You'll learn about cheese chemistry in lecture and in practice, making four very different cheeses. You'll learn about the influence of time, temperature, pressure, and various molds and yeasts, and you'll walk away with your own cheeses to eat immediately and after a few weeks of aging. Professional cheesemaker Sacha Laurin leads. Lunch, snack, and coffee included. Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm  Date: Sunday, February 9, 2020 InstructorSacha Laurin

Cheese + Beer 101

Cheese and beer: These new-found friends in fermentation are all the rage in foodie circles. Why? Because while some cheese and wine pairings can set off fireworks, many are duds. Beer is easier to pair with cheese, a more forgiving medium in which to taste the subtleties of dairy. Cheese and beer nut Matthew Zehnder will lead you in an introduction to the lovely couple.   Time: 6:00 - 8:00pm  Date: Friday, February 9th  Instructor: Matthew Zehnder
