Cheesemaking|Ricotta & Fromage Blanc

Thursday | September 13th | 4-8pm

cheesemakingIn this workshop we will explore the history and making of new American cheeses as led by Jacqueline Foster, cheesemaker of Mermaid Farm & Dairy in Chilmark. Hear the story of the renaissance that is happening on small farms from the Northwest Pacific to right here in New England and how we got here.

Discover the science and the art of cheesemaking with us as we talk and taste through some of the best domestic cheeses, from robust blues the the stinkiest of washed-rinds.

Get some hands-on experience and some recipes to take home with our Ricotta and Fromage Blanc demonstrations. We will end the evening with a light dinner prepared by Jan Buhrman using local fresh ingredients with your freshly prepared cheese as the star.
