French Blue Cheese Cheesemaking Class, Sunday, July 21, 2019

Sunday, July 21, 2019 - 10:00am

Sunday, July 21st - learn from Eric Jones, Julian's resident cheesemaker, the craft of making the famous blue cheese of France: Bleu d'Auvergne. In this half-day workshop, you'll learn about cheese making, including the chemistry, biology, and process that turns milk into the 1,000's of wildly different varieties of cheese. Through a detailed demonstration of the blue cheese process, hands-on activities, and yes, cheese tasting, you'll come away with the recipes and knowledge to start making cheese in your own home! Together, you will share some of the stirring and other mysterious cheese making duties, but it's not particularly messy.  Eric will have crackers, wine, and cheese on hand.

Available for eight participants at $65 per person. All proceeds go to the Volcan Mountain Foundation.
