Cheesemaking - From Lemon Cheese to Brasstown Cheese

About Cheesemaking - From Lemon Cheese to Brasstown Cheese

Learn how to make 5 cheeses in 5 days! Each day will feature a new recipe, and we’ll work our way from simpler cheese to more complex. Start with lemon cheese, followed by feta, cream cheese, and mozzarella. For a little taste of the Folk School at home, finish up your week with Brasstown cheese. Spend the mornings with demonstrations and instruction and bring your questions to our afternoon Q&A.

This class is presented in collaboration with the John C. Campbell Folk School & is limited to 24 students. There will be an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony hosted from the Folk School campus that students can attend online.

Gary Colles

Gary , known as The Cheese Guy, began making artisan cheese at home after eating "half his weight" in Stilton cheese in pubs across England, Ireland, and Scotland while he and his wife toured castles and gardens on vacation years ago. Following training by noted experts in Michigan and Canada, he has been teaching cheesemaking classes for more than a decade now. Gary enjoys showing students how to use common kitchen equipment to turn milk into "cheese magic."
