Gourmet Chevre for Holiday Entertaining
Imagine this - you're throwing a holiday party and your guests show up to find that your appetizer is a sampling of six different goat cheeses that you made from scratch yourself. They're amazed and impressed and you shall forever be known as the cheese god/goddess. Our little secret? It took you less than an hour of active time to make them all! We'll show you how in this delectable and simple workshop. The perfect solution for impressive entertaining - easy, indulgent and elegant!!
We'll demonstrate the process of making simple chevre cheese from scratch and then teach the trick of making it look like you made six different cheeses. Bonus, you’ll learn some history of cheesemaking, important facts about milk quality and differences as well as the complex chemistry behind cheesemaking, all covered in a fun, easy to understand format.
In the second half of the class, students will play around with a variety of fresh herbs from the FARMcurious garden and other yummy add-ins to dress up their cheese. Everyone will go home with a sample of the cheese we made and you adorned (unless you eat it all – we won’t judge!) and the knowledge to do it all again with confidence at home.
Supplies Required: None but you have the option of purchasing a home cheese-making kit at the reduced price of $20 (normally $25) to get you started at home. The kit includes all the ingredients you need (except milk) in enough quantity to make unlimited batches at home!! Feel free to bring your own beverages.
Limit: 16 people
