Home Cheesemaking: Cheddar Cheeses with Wine Pairing – 4:00 pm
April 30, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$45
Join us as we learn about the Cheddar family of cheeses and how to pair them with wine. Registration is required at www.theartofcheese.com.
The process of “cheddaring” is what makes this family of cheeses develop their unique texture. Though cheddars take longer to produce than most cheeses, they can be enjoyed at various stages of development, from the fresh “curd” stage, to right after pressing, to after several months of aging. The traditional color of cheddar come from adding a diluted extract from the annatto plant.
In this class we will make a delicious “Milk Maid” Cheddar together, taste and go over recipes for several other varieties and look at different techniques to finish these cheeses including waxing, bandaging and a natural rind finish. We’ll also pair several cheddar varieties with some nice local wine at the end of the class so must be 21+ to register! Cheesemaking supplies will be available for purchase. See www.theartofcheese.com for additional events.
