Our introduction to cheese making covers a broad range of useful and anecdotal information on the centuries-old tradition of cheese making. Our instructor, Wil Edwards, will present a “linear learning” approach. We will discuss the historical and cultural underpinnings of cheese making and focus on the source of all our cheese: lactating animals! Get ready discuss milk fermentation, cheese styles, rind development and aging techniques. Our program will conclude with a rockin’-good tasting to compliment the class’s curriculum.
