Advanced Cheesemaking

Peter is offering a series of one and two day Advanced Cheesemaking Intensives from December 1st throught 12th.

Go beyond the basics of cheesemaking with these intesnsive sessions. The focus is on making, aging, and controlling quality, and the sessions will revolve around hands-on cheesemaking and thorough discussion.

In each session we will cover:

• Starter and Ripening Cultures
• Cheesemaking Recipe Development
• Specific Cheese Aging Techniques
• Equipment and Facilities
• Food Safety
• Cheese Grading and Quality Control

Advanced Cheesemaking sessions are for cheesemakers who have licensed, commercial small-scale cheese businesses and want to expand product lines, experiment with new cultures and recipes, and improve quality. Participants are invited to bring cheeses for tasting and evaluation.
