Cheese Curds for Christmas! (with Beer Pairing) – 2:00 pm
December 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$49.00
Cheddar Cheese Curds – aka “squeaky cheese” – are so much fun to make and to eat! Or you can press and age them for a delicious wheel of sharp cheddar. Learn how to make this yummy treat to enjoy at your holiday parties or to make as a fun and tasty gift.
The process of cheddaring involves piling blocks of curds on top of each other, and then milling and salting this somewhat press cheese before loading it into forms to press into a wheel to be aged. But you don’t have to press and age the curds – you can eat them fresh! You can even add flavorings such has green chiles, fresh or dried herbs, horseradish powder and more.
We’ll make a big batch of curds together and then you’ll get to custom-design your own small bag of curds to eat or take home with you. We’ll enjoy our fresh curds with an awesome beer pairing at the end of class.
