We’ve had such a wonderful response to our cheesemaking classes we’ve decided to set up a new website featuring just the classes. Registration will be much easier (all online!) with options to pay via google checkout, paypal or by snail mailed check.


Here’s our new site: www.SimpleCheesemaking.com

Bring A Cheesemaking Class to Your Office (or farm, or party, or…anywhere)!

Carol Lake, founder, SimpleCheesemaking.com

Say Cheese!

Beginner Soft Cheese Making Workshop, suitable for 6 – 10 participants. 3 Hours in length. All supplies included.

Combine kitchen science with Yankee ingenuity and what do you get? Am empowering, tasty recipe for success (and fun) That’s what!

Bring your team together to learn the simple, super cool (and yummy!) science of soft cheese making. We’ll bring all the supplies to make Chevre, Fromage Blanc, Labneh, Ricotta, Lemon cheese and Queso Blanco, even Mozzarella!  Following an interactive discussion, participants will dive in and learn ingredient selection, proper stirring and draining techniques, temperature controls, culture and salt selection, which seasonings work well for each cheese, and best of all, TASTE all the cheeses!

The group will end up with 1/2 pound each of Chevre, Ricotta, Lemon cheese, Queso blanco, Labneh and a pound of Mozzarella to divide how they see fit at the end of class (if there’s any left at the end of the class!) All supplies are provided with the class fee.

**You Need*  A room to hold the class in (does not need to be large, a break room is often fine) running (potable) water, and, preferably, a stove top. Contact us for more information and details.

Our cheesemaking classes made Ricki Carol’s “Moosletter” !

We were excited to see our thank you letter featured in New England Cheese Making Supply’s “Moosletter” !

Our classes are held twice a month, and are about three hours long (though we usually go a smidge over!)  Our fee is $45, all supplies are included. We suggest you bring paper and pen, cus there will be lots to write down! We do have animals here (cats, a dog, goats, pony, chickens, geese, etc.) so do let us know if you have an allergy and we will do our best to prevent said allergen from interrupting the class. At this point in time we can’t allow small children (we are a working farm, and some things around here are just not quite suitable for little ones) or other pets to join you in your class.

We *do* however, offer a 10% discount to more than one participant.

We are considering adding several more classes, as they’ve been far more popular than we imagined (which is a good thing!). We’ve also had requests for an intermediate cheese making class, and a hard cheese making class. We’ll see if we can make that happen later in the year.

Here’s our advertisement in this month’s Monadnock Table magazine!
