About Community Impact LAB:
Community Impact LAB strives to be a force for action and to expand opportunities that everyone, especially women and children, have to be impactful. We believe that by engaging families, empowering parents, and working together to tackle challenges in real ways, we can create the sea change necessary for every person to live, give, and grow to their fullest potentials. Our Social Good, Learning, and Family LABs remove barriers to progress by giving opportunities for parents and their children to do social good, build supportive circles, and share knowledge and skills. We leverage grassroots passion and energy with innovative projects and bridge the gap between needs and available resources.
About this special class:
Learn to make three distinct and delicious types of cheese: mozzarella, chèvre (fresh goat cheese) & burrata. Enjoy sipping on wine in this fast-paced, hands-on workshop. This three-hour class walks you through the history of cheesemaking, important facts about milk quality and differences as well as the complex biology and chemistry behind turning milk into tasty cheese curds and protein-rich whey.
Each smaller group of students starts with their own gallon of milk and finesses it over the course of the class into rich, stretchy mozzarella. Enjoy some of your finished mozzarella, then we'll turn the rest into creamy, dreamy burrata. We'll also demonstrate in time-delay fashion how to craft a fresh, tangy goat cheese along with tips to make your goat cheese appear as several different types of artisanal cheeses through various preparation techniques.
This workshop is taught by Nicole Easterday, the founder of FARMcurious. Nicole is an engaging teacher who encourages a fun, social environment while she explains what’s happening in a very down-to-earth format.
Attendees will leave the Three Cheeses in Three Hours class with:
- A new appreciation for the magic that is cheese
- Confidence and knowledge to reproduce the same results at home.
- Handouts including recipes, frequently asked questions, and resources.
- Delicious, versatile whey we produce while making the cheese (don't worry, we'll explain how to use it - you can't wait, check out this blog post).
- Ideas for a few fail-proof, local and sustainable wines to pair with cheese – never again at a loss before a dinner party!!
This is the cheese workshop you won’t want to miss!
"I can't say enough great things about my FARMcurious class and its founder, Nicole. I'm a cheesemonger through and through and I loved every bit of Nicole's class. She diligently explains the science behind the process so that you aren't just following directions but understanding what makes cheese cheese. All the while she feeds you her own freshly made chevre and some wine. We made friends, learned a new culinary skill, and had a blast. It was delightful!" - Allison S.

A mozzarella making kit to give now and the promise of our most popular cheesemaking class in the spring! The gift that keeps on giving!
Brie seems like the type of cheese that would be made by magical little elves in France. But it's actually one of the easiest cheeses to make at home with little to no special equipment required!From $ 150.00
