I’m always intrigued by doing everything myself and doing things the old fashioned way. Cheese making has been on my agenda for awhile, and I was finally able to get some instruction this weekend! (and it’s WAY easier than it looks!)
My friend invited a local cheese artisan to teach a small group at his house and it was so much fun! This lady was AWESOOOOOME! She not only taught us how to make cheese, but also sour cream and yogurt. She also gave us a wealth of handy tips and brought in about 5 different cheeses that she made for us to sample. :) I tried a 5 yr old feta that was TAAANGY along with a 3 yr old cheddar, a dutch cheese (which is the same one we made), a 3 yr old indigenous flora – a cheddar that got an air pocket and held in some whey, so it had a SUPER sharp taste. Almost bitter, but SO GOOD! You just had to eat tiny bites. :), and a Lavender cheese which was SOOOO Yummy!
We made a Dutch cheese with cow’s milk, and we had a batch of goat’s milk we intended to make feta with. However, when the goat’s milk was cooling on the stovetop, she accidentally turned on the wrong burner when trying to heat a kettle of water. SO, we ended up making Ricotta, instead. She also told us how to make Gjetost with the whey!
All in all, a SUPER fun day filled with a wealth of knowledge! She gave us all recipes and told me to call her anytime I have questions! Such an awesome lady and I’m so glad I got to meet her. I also found out she does soap-making, so I may hire her to teach a soap making class sometime. :) 22 months ago
