This class is an intermediate level class but easy to follow even if you are a beginner. In this class, you will learn an easy bloomy-rind cheese called Brie. Brie looks quite scary to make with that white bloomy covering, but it’s actually quite easy. You will learn, hands on, how to make a tasty bloomy rind. While we are letting the Cultures and molds ripen, we will learn a Greek Feta cheese.
In this class we will focus on a bloomy rind cheese. Although complex-flavored, it is relatively easy to make. This cheese is best known for its white bloomy exterior and rich, creamy center. You will be in groups of 5 and learn to finesse a gallon of milk into cheese. We will begin the class making Brie from fresh milk and create a cheese wheel for each and every one in class. While our milk is ripening we will discuss the differences of a variety of bloomy rind cheeses. We will also then Learn how to make a Greek Feta cheese and store it in herbs and oils. We will also be going over how to age our cheese at home and what to expect during our aging days to come and when to expect to have a finished Brei product to eat.
During your experience in this class, you will learn simple techniques in cheese making that you will always use. We will also be discussing the best wine & beer pairings that go with these cheeses. Not only is this class fun, you will walk away with the desire to learn more about making home-made cheeses. You will leave the class with a wheel of Brie to age, a jar of Feta and your own copies of the recipe of the cheeses we make and the knowledge to make your own cheese at home.
