Cheesemaking 101 plus Wine & Cheese Pairing

September 20, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join the Cheese Chariot at The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey. They will be doing an outdoor event with their new mobile classroom featuring delicious cheeses paired with the winery’s award winning wines (seating on heated veranda in case of bad weather). This cheesemaking 101 class is an upbeat culinary adventure on how cheese is made and what makes one cheese different from another. You’ll learn:
~ The basic art and science behind cheesemaking
~ The simple ingredients needed and how to source them
~ All about milk – the fundamental building block of cheese
~ How to make a simple artisan cheese yourself (with sampling!)
~ What makes that bloomy rind on your favorite wedge of Brie?
~ How do those blue veins get into blue cheese?
~ And much more!
Plus you’ll enjoy wines made at The Winery At Holy Cross Abbey paired with each cheese.
After class, you can stay and enjoy some delicious cheesy pizza from the wood-fired oven if you wish (not included with price).
Space is limited so register today!
Cost includes five wine samples and a wedge of cheese to take home.
