Intro to Cheese Making
Join organic farmer and cheese maker David Asher Rotsztain as we explore the fascinating realm of cheese. David will walk you through the techniques for making three basic styles of fresh cheese: paneer, yogurt cheese and rennet cheese curds, the foundational cheese that can become many different styles of aged cheese.
The workshop will emphasize a ‘natural cheesemaking’, with a focus on simple, DIY methods that are well suited to the home kitchen. David will also discuss the topics of raw milk, rennet-free cheeses and dairy ferments. At the end of the workshop, we will feast on our freshly made cheeses.
What to bring
Bring along a container to take home fresh cheese and some dairy cultures.
