HUMBOLDT FOG-STYLE CHEESE + VALENCAY! – Live, Virtual, Interactive Cheesemaking via Zoom!
November 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$29.00
Humboldt Fog is one of the most beloved cheeses made by the Cypress Grove Creamery in Northern California. Its name pays tribute to the ocean fog that rolls in from Humboldt Bay and Cypress Grove founder, Mary Keehn says the recipe was conceived in a dream! As far as we can tell, it’s a very similar cheese to Valencay, a Frech pyramid-shaped goat cheese, except that it’s made in a round form and has a line of ash running through the center much like another delicious cheese, Morbier. So, we’ve included both versions and recipes in this class! We know that Cypress Grove may do things a little differently, and that information is most definitely proprietary, but ours is a pretty close approximation!
This live, interactive session will happen at 2:00 p.m. MT on November 1, 2020, 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.
