Cheesemaking Bootcamp Day Two: Intermediate Cheeses 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

February 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Come to one or both days of this two-day bootcamp and learn how to make up to a dozen different cheeses!  On the first day we’ll cover the basics and make several quick and easy beginner cheeses.  We’ll continue on the second day with intermediate level cheeses that take a little more time and a little more equipment, but are still quite simple and they don’t even require a special aging facility (you can age these cheeses in a regular refrigerator if needed).  Attend just one day and you’ll receive your Bronze Level Certification; attend both days and you’ll be Silver-Level Certified.  We’ll provide lunch with wine and dessert each day.

Here’s what we tentatively have planned (subject to slight changes):

Day One:

  • Food Safety Overview – Part 1
  • Ricotta
  • Chevre
  • Fromage Blanc/Quark
  • Creme Fraiche
  • 30-Minute Mozzarella/Burrata

We’ll also take a tour of the Haystack Mountain Creamery where our classroom is located

Day Two:

  • Food Safety Overview – Part 2
  • Feta (Dry-Salted & Marinated)
  • Making a Cheese Press
  • Queso Fresco
  • Western Culture Farm Cheese
  • Crottin
  • Blue Capricorn

We’ll conclude this day with a field trip to Briar Gate Farm to meet the goats that inspired The Art of Cheese

Due to low enrollment, this class is on hold.  Please e-mail if you are interested in taking it to find out the status.  Thanks!
