3 “Jacks” – Monterey, Pepper, & Dry Jack Cheeses – Live, Virtual, Interactive Cheesemaking via Zoom!
September 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$29.00
“Jack” cheese’s history dates back to 1700s Mexican Franciscan Friars and is considered an American original. The cheese gets its name from the use of a “horsejack” to press the cheese. Also, after the Monterey entrepreneur who made it popular, whose name was Jack. Pepper Jack is a festive cheese perfect for snacking or sandwiches. Dry Jack is another American original created to replace hard-Italian cheeses during WWI. Enjoy it plain with a bit of honey, or as a substitute for Parmesan. It has a rub applied at the end which can be made with cocoa, smoked paprika, or any other dry ingredient added to olive oil.
