Edible Gifts Workshop: A Curated Collection of Food Preservation Skills
Impress your friends and colleagues with the completely handmade party platter this holiday season then delight loved ones when you give these hand-crafted delicacies as memorable, edible gifts.
One part giftable holiday nibbles, one part make-your-own party platter, this hands-on workshop serves up a deliciously curated collection of some of our tastiest homesteading skills: cheesemaking, meat curing, fermenting, and jamming! Not only will you get to dabble in these crafts, but we'll show you how to create an array of delicious morsels to feature at holiday festivities or to package as delectable handmade gifts the person who has it all will be not able to resist.
Nicole Easterday will guide you in creating the perfect party platter with:
- Cheesemaking: Handmade goat cheese so fresh and lofty it has converted many a goat cheese-hater. The end result appears as if you make several different types of cheese to decorate the most spectacular cheese board (we won't tell you did it in four easy steps).
- Charcuterie: A duck breast prosciutto that will haunt your dreams-seriously, people still rave about this after trying it at our holiday party.
- Fermentation: Complement your cheese board with easy pickled vegetables
- Fruit preserves: Create a fruit preserve to make your cheese plate pop.
If you've already taken either our Three Cheese in Three Hours class, our Home Charcuterie Workshop, or the Peculiar and Curious Pickles Class, you'll have even more homemade goodies to pile on to your impressive platter.
