12/9/18: Traditional Cheese Making
@ Wellspring Organic Farm and Retreat Center
4382 Hickory Rd West Bend, WI
Traditional foods are/were consumed throughout history before the modernization and industrialization of the food supply. These foods are not only free from additives, chemicals and many of the things we find in food today, but they were exceptionally nourishing.
This class includes lecture, demonstrations and a hands-on component. Participants will take home cultures and/or food that we prepare in class. These classes are facilitated by Linda Conroy of Moonwise Herbs, who has been preparing traditional food in her kitchen and teaching classes on the topic for over two decades. Linda has completed an advanced Fermentation Residency program with Internationally acclaimed author and fermentation expert, Sandor Katz. Linda herself is considered an expert on preparing fermented food as well as providing information about how fermentation promotes digestive as well as overall health.
Join us at Wellspring Organic Educational farm for this fun and immersive experience. Where applicable, we will be using veggies grown on-site, included in this program. You may also purchase additional vegetables to take home as desired.
Feta and Ricotta are two styles of cheese that can be easily crafted in the home kitchen. In this class, we will discuss the best milk choices for making cheese at home and then delve into a hands on experience of these two style sof cheese. Samples will be included and everyone will take cheese home, as well as lots of recipes for making cheese and for incorporating it into other recipes.
