At Home Cheesemaking

11:00a.m. to 1:30p.m.
Trade School Indy
1125 Brookside Ave
Indianapolis US

Blessed are the cheesemakers! There is no better cheese than the kind you make yourself, and we'll prove that by showing you how to make Fromage Blanc (Chevre), Ricotta, and a 30 minute Mozzarella. The basics of sanitation, milk handling, and equipment will also be covered. Although most of the class is demonstrative, you'll leave with some homework to finish fromage blanc at home. If you want to participate in the after class homework, please bring a gallon jug of milk! All cheese enjoyed in class will be made using goat milk. *If you have any health / dietary concerns, please contact us before signing-up to determine whether the environment will be conducive to your health and safety.
