Cheese-Making Class Today!

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!


  1. So exciting! I've been making my own cheese using the fresh cheese recipe in How to Cook Everything Vegetarian, but I want to learn more. Except, oh wait, I just gave up dairy. Crap.

  2. I wanna hear all about it! I hear goats bleating in your future... and a cheese cellar under the stairs???
