Cheesepalooza – A year in Cheese Making Begins 1 August 2012!

Do you love cheese?  Have you ever wondered how they make it?  It is not as hard as you think!

The time has come to join the cheese revolution my friends, put down that plastic wrapped supermarket cheese, step away from the processed cheese-in-a-can and walk…no run to Cheesepalooza!  Join us in a one year journey of cheese making using Mary Karlin’s “Artisan Cheese Making at Home” and with some input from Mary Karlin herself (when she can, she is currently writing another book).  There will be challenges or “Cheese of the Month” that will be progressive in nature, each building on what you have learned from the cheeses you have made before.

We will be working on fresh cheeses first then moving into ones that require a little aging. “But wait”, you say, “I don’t have a place to age my cheese”. Don’t worry we will give options to help you with where you can age your cheese.  Think it is too expensive?  You will be surprised to know that you have most of the equipment at home already.

All the information is being hosted at  You don’t have to be a blogger to participate, we will have options for those who want to join.  Sign up and learn to leave the “plastic” cheese behind.
