COTIJA & QUESO FRESCO – Live, Virtual, Interactive Cheesemaking via Zoom!
November 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$29.00
Cotija is a salty, crumbly Mexican cheese that is often grated or crumbled onto tacos or in other popular Mexican dishes. It is slightly aged and can be eaten in as little as 2 weeks, or aged a bit longer to mellow and become a little less salty. Queso Fresco is a Latin American quick farm cheese. It does a brief pressing time, but no aging refrigeration is needed. It can be made plain or flavored with dried or fresh herbs or canned or roasted fresh jalapeño peppers.
This live, interactive session will happen at 12:00 noon MT on November 12th and will be taught by Art of Cheese Owner & Lead Cheese Coach, Kate Johnson. But don’t worry if you can’t attend the session at that time! A recording will be available for you to watch at your convenience shortly after the class.
