Ever wanted to make your own aged vegan cheeses and were too scared to try? Ilsa "The Nacheez Lady (" Hess shows you how fun and easy it is to make your own probiotic, rejuvalac, and use it to easily age vegan cheeses.

We will make a selection of delicious aged vegan cheeses including:

• Rejuvelac (used to age cheeses)
• Cashew Cream Cheese
• Chèvre
• Herbed Chèvre
• Lox-Flavored Cream Cheese

There will also be a discussion about cooked cheeses such as Brie, Camembert and Pepperjack.

These cheese recipes come from Miyoko Schinner’s cookbook “Artisan Vegan Cheese” and “The Non-Dairy Evolution Cookbook” by Skye Michael Conrad.

A selection of homemade vegan cheeses will be available for tasting including all of the cheeses we will be making. I will also have a vegan butter made without palm oil for people to sample and the recipe to take home.

Cost: $21 Earlybird Registration ( or $25 day of class
