Intro to Hard Cheeses & Alpine (Swiss) Cheeses – 1:00 pm
April 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$59
In this double feature class, we’ll cover two intermediate-level pressed cheeses. Registration is required at www.theartofcheese.com. First, we’ll make a wonderful Italian cheese that is perfect to start with, because it doesn’t require a fancy cheese press and only needs to age for 3 weeks before you can taste the results of your effort. We will show you how to make a simple press with materials you can find at no cost, and you’ll get to practice waxing your own little wheel of this cheese. Next, we’ll cover several recipes for Alpine (Swiss) cheeses and together make a delicious Jarslberg while learning about the special ingredient that helps create the eyes and flavor profile that are unique to this family of cheeses. Cheesemaking supplies will be available for purchase. See www.theartofcheese.com for additional events!
