In this class, herbalist Susan Hess will teach us to make fresh soft cheese with cow or goat milk and culture. We will go through the simple processes of making a fresh cheese like Chevre’ or Fromage Blanc. Unlike cheese that needs to be aged and carefully tended for months, fresh cheeses are ready to eat with a day and can be easily incorporated into any kitchen routine using basic kitchen equipment.
This class will be held in the home kitchen of Herbs from the Labyrinth, 1053 Wheatland Avenue in Lancaster. You will have a chance to explore the labyrinth garden during the cheese-tasting at the end of the class.
$ 50.00, in advance for the class. A variety of cheese-making supplies and books will also be available for purchase after the class.
To register call Radiance, 290-1517, or stop by the shop at 9 W Grant St, in downtown Lancaster, right across the cobblestones from Central Market.
