Learning new skills

The budding cheesemakers in the Hermann, Missouri class are already in their 4th week. This is the week to make cheddar, America's favorite cheese. It is so wonderful to watch people as they learn, gain confidence and create something that is totally of their own making. In a room full of 18 people, everyone doing the same thing at just about the same time, there are 18 different results.  I checked the Brie they made last week and we are getting white mold development.  Beautiful!

I'm looking forward to doing a demo at the O'Fallon Farmers' and Artists Market on Saturday, August 14th, 9:30 a.m. I'll be making cheese on the spot and talking about the basic principles of cheesemaking. Stop by if you can.
