Yesterday I taught my first of three Cheese Making Classes for Metro Continuing Education here in Edmonton. There were 12 participants from the Greater Edmonton Area, all wanting to learn some of the basics or cheese making. They were a great group and in the end I ended up learning a thing or two as well. We started with a talk on the basics and then dove right into making cheese. It was a hands on class, with only one demonstration cheese, the Queso Fresco, and we finished with my “Quick Mozzarella”
I will be posting the Queso Fresco I made ahead of the class as well as the directions on how to make it in a future post. The rest of the classes for Metro Continuing Education are full, but you can always send me an email through the Cheese Making Classes section of my website and we can talk.
The Telus World of Science – Edmonton, has started to host evenings with various themes for Adults, called “DARK MATTERS“. The next night (March 13, 2014) is all about the science of food, with various presenters including Alley Kat Brewing Company and I will be talking about some of the science behind making cheese and making my “Quick Mozzarella” as part of the demonstration. If you are in the Edmonton on the 13th stop by and say hello.
