Join Art of Cheese Instructor Becca Heins, Certified Cheese Professional, in her home kitchen for an afternoon of hands on home cheesemaking. Today’s class will focus on “bloomy rind” cheeses such as Brie & Camembert. These cheeses are best known for their white, bloomy exteriors and rich, creamy centers. And although Brie and Camembert are the most popular in this cheese family, they are just the beginning! In this class we will sample different styles of bloomy rind cheeses, and students will take home a bloomy cheese to ripen and enjoy. You will also learn how to use ash and different aging techniques to make a variety of cheeses from a few simple recipes. An instructional packet with recipes and aging instructions is included.
We’ll also explore Becca’s cheese aging space and discuss tips and aging techniques for this delicious family of cheeses. We’ll wrap up class with a relaxing wine and cheese sampling with some delicious serving ideas. Class size is limited to 6 for a truly personal home cheesemaking experience!
