GOUDA – Live, Virtual, Interactive Cheesemaking via Zoom!
October 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$29.00
Gouda was originally made in Holland and has a sweet and elastic paste due to the process of washing and heating the curds. As a washed-curd cheese, its mild flavor and moist texture are created by diluting the whey with warm water during the cooking process. It can be eaten after just a month or two of aging, or can be aged for several years. Gouda can be made with cow or goat milk with just some minor adjustments. We’ll teach you how to make a simple cheese press and we recommend that you set up a wine fridge or a mini fridge as your “cheese cave” when you’re ready to try these on your own.
This live, interactive session will happen at 12:00 p.m. MT on October 9, 2020, and will be taught by Certified Cheese Professional, Kelly Liebrock. 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.
