This event has passed.

Go beyond the basics of cheesemaking with these intensive sessions. The focus is on making, aging, and controlling quality, and the sessions will revolve around hands-on cheesemaking and thorough discussion.

In each session we will cover:

• Starter and Ripening Cultures
• Cheesemaking Recipe Development
• Specific Cheese Aging Techniques
• Equipment and Facilities
• Food Safety
• Cheese Grading and Quality Control

Advanced Cheesemaking sessions are for cheesemakers who have licensed, commercial small-scale cheese businesses and want to expand product lines, experiment with new cultures and recipes, and improve quality.  Participants are invited to bring cheeses for tasting and evaluation.
