Cheese Making Class - JMD Farm Market & Garden Center

Make this Winter season extra rich and creamy by treating yourself and your favorite relatives to a cheesemaking class and wine & cheese tasting at JMD Garden Center on February 16 from 1-4 p.m. We will start class by covering the basics of cheesemaking before launching into a recipe for buttery farmers cheese. After that, we'll master the art of making mascarpone before finishing with a quick lesson on making homemade cheese dip--from scratch!

Before the afternoon is over, we'll sit and enjoy a tasting of over a dozen artisan cheeses matched with honey, fruits and local wine and ciders. During the tasting, we'll talk about the effects of age, milk type and microbial activity. Finally, we'll send you home with recipes, your own mini cheese wheel and an unbeatable winter memory.
