Some say that soft cheeses are easy and hard cheeses are hard, but in this class we will learn that's not necessarily so! We will start by making a delicious Italian hard cheese that uses simple ingredients, minimal equipment and only needs to age for 3 weeks! We will also cover several other hard cheese recipes including a delicious Colby and a Farmhouse Cheddar and you will learn how to wax a cheese wheel. As a special bonus, you will learn how to make a very simple cheese press out of completely free materials! Cost of $39 includes instruction, lots of delicious cheese samples and a recipe packet.

This class is held at the Cheese Importers in Longmont and is taught by Kate Johnson of Briar Gate Farm and The Art of Cheese. Visit for details and registration information. Like us at
