Crottinis and Tominos (fresh cheese fun) with The Milk Maid
As the second class in The Milk Maid's cheesemaking series, we bring you Crottin (puck shaped goat cheese), Tominos (puck shaped cow cheese) and a world of 'edible playdough'-like fun. You will learn how to season your cheese, decorate with vegetable ash, and work on growing a white coat. Or you'll learn to just enjoy your cheese fresh! Participants bring home a starter kit which includes a cheese form, cultures, cheese salt, rennet and instructions.
Part 3 will be Greek Yogurt and Kefir - tickets are on sale now here. Coming to each class isn't required, but heavily encouraged!
