I just wanted to give a brief update that I'm heading to a Cheese-Making class this afternoon, offered by the Master Food Preserver program of the Oregon State University Lane County Extension Service.
I am so excited! I've always wanted to learn how to make cheese. I was originally inspired by the one and only Barbara Kingsolver's forays into cheesemaking in her book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, but never got a chance to actually take a class and try it out for myself.
And now, for $15 and 3 hours of my time, I get to get my hands in the cheese. Gotta love the Master Food Preserver program!
I will of course take photos and gather recipes and report on it all here. Stay tuned and say cheese!
