Crafting Brie & Camembert at Home
It's so easy!
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!
Our most indulgent class!
While we wait for the curd to set, we spend a truly decadent hour sampling a collection of exquisite bries with velvety wine. Experience the variety available in this one cheese - from ash rinds to added ingredients like herbs or mushrooms, to using different milks like goat, sheep, or cow - there's so much to taste!
We'll even teach you how to schedule brie making into your busy life.
Nicole will be your guide throughout the tasting, discussing what you're experiencing and how to recreate it as a home cheesemaker.
Tiny brie wheels make a show-stopping gift
Because you make 12 tiny wheels at a time, you'll have 12 instant gifts for the holidays! Give them as-is or wrap some in phyllo dough with a little jam for a very festive treat. Friends and family will delight in your new skill. We'll cover how to wrap the cheese and present it in the best way possible.
Ticket price includes instruction, tastings, recipes and edible homework.
Supplies Required: Nothing is required but you can bring a quart-size container to take some some liquid whey (we'll explain what to do with it!).
