Guild charter member and cheesemaker Caitlin Hunter is again offering mid-winter and early spring cheese making workshops. This year’s lineup includes: Design Your Own Class, Day at the Dairy, Basics of Home Cheese Making–2 Day Workshop, Basics of Hard Cheese, Intro to Goat Cheese and Italian Fun. You can learn more and register at appletoncreamery.com.
There is always more to learn about cheese, no matter how many you taste or how many regions you visit. For example in an article about a very special grana cheese made in a very special area of Tuscany I learned that you cannot trust French sheep, and that the key to the complexity of flavors in Pecorino di Pienza is that “this valley is full of suffering herbs.”
Seriously, what could be MORE French than a debate about cheese?!? Luckily for us it’s also in English. Enjoy!
