What to Bring:

one gallon or larger stock pot, colander that fits inside the stock pot to drain the curds and whey, baking dish or other large container to plunge the stock pot into an ice bath, candy making thermometer (to 220 degree Fahrenheit), metal whisk, metal spoon, container to bring home cheese , toppings for cheese we will share in class (herbs, spices, edible flowers, anything that inspires you). I have extra equipment, and will have on hand for those that would like to borrow.

Jen and her husband Jason Beetz, have a herd of goats, living the good life – grazing on grass, in Barnstable. She has agreed (yeah) to teach Slow Food members and friends how to make cheese with fresh goat milk from Oak Knoll Farm. We will be making both chevre and ricotta from the goat milk. This will be a hands on activity! In addition to making the cheese, Jen is going to bring some pre-made plain chevre that we can flavor with our toppings. I’ll supply the crostini, crackers, bread and other food items to savor with our chevre (and some wine).
