Cheesemaking 101 with Wine & Cheese Pairing
July 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$35
Join Kate Johnson from The Art of Cheese – an Artisan Cheesemaking School in Longmont, Colorado – as she teaches you the basics of how to make cheese at home!
During this lively and interactive presentation, you’ll learn the art and science behind cheesemaking including:
The composition of milk and how to source the best kind for your cheesemaking; The main 4 ingredients in almost every cheese and where to get them; What kind of equipment you’ll need (most of which you already have); How to turn that milk into delicious cheese (it’s easier than you might think)!
As Kate unravels the mystery of cheesemaking for you, she’ll be making a fresh and delicious Chevre goat cheese with milk from her very own dairy goats. You’ll get to sample the freshly made fromage right on the spot. She’ll also guide you through a wine & cheese pairing featuring cheeses from The Fox & The Crow – a wonderful cheese shop and bistro located right in Ft. Collins! As you sample each cheese on your plate, you’ll learn a little about how each one is made.
This event will be held downstairs or outside (weather permitting) and is handicapped accessible.
