Hands-on Soft Cheesemaking Class
Soft Cheesemaking Class in Seattle. In this class you'll learn how to make seven soft cheeses-mozzarella, ricotta, lebneh (yogurt cheese), quark, cream cheese, chevre and mascarpone-and you will taste homemade versions of all of them. You'll find that if you can follow a recipe you can make these cheeses in your own kitchen. We'll make several of them in class and talk through all the recipes to troubleshoot any difficulties you might run into. You'll learn how to make the cheeses in your own kitchen, talk about sources of cheese information and equipment, and eat lots of cheese. Class is limited to 16 students.
