Cheesemaking Workshop

Join us for a crash course on the process of cheesemaking taught by Stephanie Angstand of Valley Milkhouse! In this introductory cheesemaking class, Stefanie will teach participants how to make a simple ricotta “basket” style cheese using only a stock pot and a stovetop. The ingredients include simply milk and vinegar. So you will definitely be able to replicate this recipe at home with minimal equipment. As we make the cheese, we will go over some of the fundamentals of cheesemaking including ripening/fermentation, coagulation, cutting the curd, hooping, draining and salting. As a special treat Steph will bring a selection of Valley Milkhouse cheeses for tasting! The class will finish with a Q&A and an evaluative cheese tasting. Everyone will get a ricotta basket and cheese cloth to take home to make their own.
