Event description
Discover the secrets of traditional cheese making practices over two days with organic farmer and farmstead cheese maker, David Asher.

About this Event

This comprehensive course begins with a session on dairy fermentation, covering Kefir, Creme Fraiche, Cultured Butter and Clabber. In the afternoon we look at rennet cheeses, preparing the basic curd that can become many different styles of cheese, including Camembert, Blue Cheeses, Washed Rind Cheeses and Mozzarella.

On the second morning we make soft lactic cheeses such as Cream Cheese & Chèvre, then we take the same curd and age it into Crottin, Valencay and Saint Marcellin.

On the second afternoon we make a hard Alpine Cheese. And with its leftover whey we prepare a batch of fresh, warm Ricotta.

Two days of learning allows students to see many cheeses through the beginning stages of their evolution, and provides insight into how all styles of cheeses can evolve from the very same milk, with the same culture and the same rennet.

The workshop will be demonstration style: we all make cheese together round the pot.

David Asher is an organic farmer, farmstead cheese maker and cheese educator based on the Gulf Islands of British Columbia, Canada. A guerrilla cheesemaker, David does not make cheese according to standard industrial philosophies - he explores traditionally cultured and more organic methods of cheesemaking.

David offers cheese workshops to communities near and far with the Black Sheep School of Cheesemaking. Through workshops in partnership with food-sovereignty-minded organizations, he shares his distinct cheesemaking style. His workshops teach a cheesemaking method that is natural, DIY, and well suited to the home kitchen or artisanal production. He is the author of The Art of Natural Cheesemaking.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are inclusive in this course. The second day will conclude with local wines and a cheese tasing. David's book, The Art of Natural Cheesemaking, will be available for purchase during the course.
