Cheesemaking Intensive

Saturday | May 24, 2014 — Sunday | May 25, 2014

The Institute of Urban Homesteading | North Oakland, CA

This two-day intensive course will cover everything you need to get started making simple cheeses that are easily created in a home environment. We will learn about cultures, equipment, ingredients and cheesemaking concepts and will work with both cow & goat milk to complete a number of cheesemaking projects including: Yogurt, Yogurt Cheese, Feta, Ricotta, Brie, Buttermilk, Sour Cream, Chevre, Mozarella and Cultured Butter. We will also learn about the hard cheese process. You will receive hand-outs outlining the major concepts, recipes and resources to help you along once you try your hand at home. Each day will culminate in a community feast in which we share food, sample the cheeses and enjoy the friends we have made working together through the weekend.

This class starts on Saturday May 24, and is from 12pm-6pm.  The hours for Sunday May 25 10am-2pm.
