TWO BLUES: BLUE CAPRINE & BLEU DU QUEYRAS – Live via Zoom!
February 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$29.00
Blue Caprine is a simple little blue goat cheese log similar to Chevre but with a ripe, wrinkly blue rind. Unlike many blue cheeses, this one is not pierced, making a stunning contrast between the blue exterior and the very white interior. It’s quick and easy and matures within a few weeks, although the longer you age it, the more flavorful it becomes.
Bleu du Queyras is a blue table cheese from the eastern part of France near the Italian border. It is a blue-veined cheese made from cow’s milk. It has a brief warmer aging time to kick-start the blue mold spores which are added directly to the curds. When aged for just 6 weeks, it has a slightly sweet, mild flavor but when aged longer it becomes almost spicy and is nice crumbled in a salad.
This live, interactive session will happen at 2:00 pm MT on February 28, 2021 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.
