I’m challenging you to learn how to make 7 Cheeses in 7 Days (or at least in 7 Lessons which you can take at your own pace)! We’ll start at the very beginning with the simplest cheeses and then each class will build on the knowledge from the previous one. By the last class you will be making a pressed, aged cheese.
What You’ll Learn:
These are the cheeses we’ll cover:
- Day One: Mascarpone
- Day Two: Paneer
- Day Three: Chevre/Fromage Blanc
- Day Four: Quark
- Day Five: Cottage Cheese
- Day Six: Feta
- Day Seven: Guido’s Italian Hard Cheese
Since you are not going to be making the cheeses in real-time along with the videos (long waiting periods between many steps make this impractical), it is not necessary to have all your ingredients and equipment in place before you begin. But when you are ready to make the cheeses, we highly recommend the New England Cheesemaking Supply Co. as a good one-stop-shopping resource. And just in time for the holidays, they’ve added a special product bundle for this course: order the 7 Day Cheese Challenge Supplies Bundle HERE
BONUS! We’ll also give you a link and recipes for our Cheesemaking 101 Course as a bonus. This 20 minute introduction to cheesemaking reviews the basics about the science behind making cheese, ingredients and equipment needed, and sourcing good milk. It also goes over how to make homemade ricotta!
You will have unlimited access to the classes and can watch them over and over as many times as you’d like. You can also e-mail us to get support and feedback as you begin making your cheeses.
Still not sure? Here’s what people have been saying about the 7 DAY CHEESE CHALLENGE:
Thank you for this opportunity Kate! This is likely the only good thing that has come from COVID – you went virtual! Your course covered just enough to get me excited, but not overwhelm. I plan to take more courses along the way. Thanks so much. ~ Ellie in Colorado
I came into these classes as a complete cheese novice and now can proudly call myself a “cheese maker”! Kate’s recipes, videos, and wealth of knowledge have given me the confidence to make cheese for the first time on my own. It’s also reassuring to know that I can refer back to the recorded videos or send her questions via email if I find myself in trouble along the “whey”! ~ Tiffany in Alabama
What a wonderful class! The recipe and video were easy to follow, Kate was very relatable, and it took cheesemaking from intimidating to doable! I look forward to participating in more classes in the future. ~ Laura in Estes Park, CO
This course is essential for making cheese, well done, easy to follow. ~ Farida in Kazakhstan, Pavlodar
I really enjoyed this series of classes. It was easy to follow and I felt confident I could make the cheeses and have success – and I did have success. My family loved each of the cheeses. The presentations were well planned and were focused on the home cheese maker. I highly recommend. ~ Nancy in Houston TX
Kate’s online cheesemaking classes are lively, fun, and informative. She will inspire you in the art of crafting your own artisan cheese, as well as teach you the science behind successful cheesemaking. I highly recommend this class! Kathy in Denver, CO
These classes were priceless for me to endeavor out on my cheese journey. Kate – you’re an incredible teacher. Going into this class, I was very nervous to try making cheese. I have to this day only made paneer once a few months ago to just try it out. I now feel completely confident to get started! As soon as my cultures arrive. ~ Macy in Orlando, FL
Great class! Very informative and fun! The provided recipes and methods are easy to follow. ~ Jacque in M
