Free Video Instructional - Making Fresh Chèvre at Home
Cheesemaking is easy and fun to do at home! In the FREE video below, you'll learn to make homemade fresh chèvre from scratch with Nicole Easterday at FARMcurious, American Cheese Society Certified Cheese Professional. This 30 minute video is based on content from one of my most popular in-person classes and demonstrates how to make easy goat cheese using store-bought (or fresh!) milk in five easy steps. I use a science-based approach to talk about why we do what we do rather than just presenting a basic recipe. You'll have quick cheese with only 8 minutes of active time, fully ready to eat in 24 hours!
Turn your fresh chèvre into pumpkin pie bites or encrust it with fresh rosemary, orange zest and black pepper!
Our urban homesteading classes on DIY life in Berkeley have been shuttered during the shelter-in-place so I'm spending time making videos to show you how to do it at home.

"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.
